The Kurt Grinnell Aquaculture Scholarship Foundation (KGASF) provides scholarships to enrolled members of U.S. federally recognized Tribes and members of First Nations recognized by Canada.  Our goal is to help Tribal, or First Nations students or prospective students pursue careers in Aquaculture by providing financial assistance for training and education.  In 2022, we will award at least two scholarships with a minimum of $5,000 USD to each recipient.  However, the number of scholarships and the amount of the awards is completely within the discretion of the KGASF.  Should the applicant desire, the KGASF will also help scholarship recipients find internships to further advance their education and training.
