Hutton Junior Fisheries Program

The Hutton Junior Fisheries Biology Program is an eight-week paid summer internship and mentoring program for high school students sponsored by the American Fisheries Society (AFS). Our vision is to stimulate interest in fisheries and aquatic science among underrepresented groups in the profession today. Participating students receive a $3,000 stipend and an all-expense paid trip to the Hutton Scholars Summit. Through our network of mentors, AFS places students in all 50 states, Canada, Mexico, and Puerto Rico within a 45-minute commute of the student’s home.

The Texas Chapter of the American Fisheries Society (TCAFS) is lucky to have multiple members who serve as Hutton Mentors. Each year multiple Hutton Scholars are paired with TCAFS Mentors to complete their summer internships working in the river and lakes throughout the State of Texas.
