This fellowship was created by AFS in 2007 to honor the memory of Steven Berkeley, a dedicated fisheries scientist with a passionate interest in integrating the fields of marine ecology, conservation biology, and fisheries science to improve fisheries management. Berkeley was a long-time member of AFS and a member of the first Board of Directors of the Fisheries Conservation Foundation. The fellowship comprises a competitively based $10,000 award to a graduate student actively engaged in thesis research relevant to marine conservation. Research topics may address any aspect of conservation; a focus on fisheries issues is not required.
Requirements for application:
1. The applicant must be a student officially accepted or currently enrolled in a M.S. or Ph.D. program.
2. The student must be actively engaged in thesis research related to some aspect of marine conservation; the intent of the award is to support ongoing research costs.
3. The student must be a member of AFS in good standing; membership can be obtained at the time of application submission.
