The Pacific Salmon Foundation Stewardship Community Bursaries are awarded to students in British Columbia and the Yukon who are dedicated to the conservation and restoration of Pacific salmon and their habitat.

Successful applicants are chosen based on volunteer involvement with their local aquatic stewardship group, an essay detailing their chosen field of study, and need for financial support in order to pursue further education.

The 2017 application highlights that a bursary applicant must be a full time student in good standing in at least second year of an accredited program that leads to a career supporting Pacific Salmon.  The application window is open through November 15. 

The bursary is supported by Fisheries and Oceans Canada, the stewardship community, and administered by Pacific Salmon Foundation.

Applications are reviewed each Fall and scholarship awards are typically made each November.
