About this funder:



The John E. Skinner Memorial Fund was established in memory of John Skinner, former California-Nevada Chapter and Western Division AFS President. The fund provides monetary travel awards for deserving graduate students or exceptional undergraduate students to attend the AFS annual meeting.

The 2020 meeting will be held in Columbus, Ohio, August 30 – September 2.

Awardees are chosen by a committee of the AFS Education Section. Selection is based on academic qualifications, professional service, and reasons for attending the meeting.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • Any student who is active in fisheries or related aquatic disciplines, and has not previously won a full Skinner award, is eligible to apply.
  • The Awards Committee is dedicated to AFS goal of increasing diversity and inclusion within our Society.
    • As part of this effort, we highly encourage nominations for individuals from historically underrepresented groups in the fisheries field.
