About this funder:



The IWFA Scholarship Trust was established in 1965 to further one of the IWFA’s chartered objectives--promoting conservation. The IWFA Scholarship Trust is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization organized for the purpose of providing financial assistance to marine science graduate students. The Scholarship Trust is funded by individual contributions from IWFA members and other private donations.

IWFA Scholarship Trust has been established to provide financial aid to qualified graduate students of Marine Science. Marine Science is defined as “the study of the ocean, its ecosystems, and its life forms, as well as the study of coastal environments, oceanic currents and the sea floor.” The Board of Trustees will award scholarships each year to assist in funding research and related expenses, and in such amounts and to such students as will be determined at its discretion.

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


  •  The following criteria will be considered:
    • The candidates for a scholarship must be matriculated at a recognized university in the United States or its territorial possessions and pursuing a course of study leading to a graduate degree in one of the Marine Sciences.
    • Only candidates approved as proper recipients for scholarship aid by the faculty of the university he or she is attending, with research project developed, will be considered.
    • The personal qualifications considered will include, but not be limited to, evidence of general aptitude and ability in the area of study, the character of the candidate, and her/his previous academic accomplishments.

    • No preference will be granted to any candidate by reason of any relationship that the candidate may have to a member of the IWFA.
