Jimmie Pigg Student Travel Scholarship

The Jimmie Pigg Student Travel Scholarship is named after
educator and aquatic biologist Mr. Jimmie Pigg who donated the
initial Chapter funding to create the award. The fund provides
monetary travel awards for deserving graduate students and
exceptional undergraduates to attend American Fisheries Society
meetings.

Any student who is active in fisheries and related aquatic
disciplines is eligible to apply. Recipients are selected by
the Chapter Nominating and Awards Committee and are presented
the award at the fall business meeting. Selection is based on
academic qualifications, professional service and contribution
to fisheries, and the applicant’s demonstrated desire/need for
the award.

Financial support will be $1000 for successful applicants.
Awards will be based on merit and will not necessarily be given
each year.
