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. The Board of |Trustees will award scholarships each year in amounts up to $2,000 for the payment of tuition, university housing and other university charges. The Board of Trustees will award scholarships in such amounts and to such students as will be determined at its discretion.
