Overview:

The Cameron Park Zoo Amphibian Conservation Scholarship is sponsored by the Cameron Park Zoo in Waco, Texas, and managed by Zoo Conservation Outreach Group (ZCOG). This scholarship may be applied only toward the Amphibian Biology, Conservation, and Management professional training course.

The Cameron Park Zoo Amphibian Conservation Scholarship was established by ZCOG and Cameron Park Zoo in recognition of the growing threat of extinction for many amphibian species throughout the Americas. The Award promotes professional training in amphibian biology, conservation, and captive management for zoo and aquarium colleagues from countries in Latin America and the Caribbean Basin.

Award recipients receive full scholarship funding to participate in the Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ (AZA) Amphibian Management School.  The Cameron Park Zoo of Waco, Texas provides funding for this annual scholarship award.

Please note: If you do not receive the award and plan to take the course anyway, the scholarship application does not represent a reserved space in an AZA course. To secure a space in a course you must submit a completed registration form, and pay the tuition in full. If you receive the award, your full tuition payment will be refunded.
