Overview:

The American Fisheries Society has established this travel award to encourage and enable members of the Society to attend annual meetings, particularly those members who might play a more active role in the meeting.

The Society recognizes that some retired members who desire to participate in the annual meeting might be inhibited for financial reasons. Retired members may not have funds for travel to meetings that were available to them while employed.  The Society has neither means nor desire to verify financial need, so that your request for support is based on an honor system.

A maximum of $1,500 may be awarded for reimbursable expenses.
