MASNA is proud to announce the 2021 – 2022 MASNA Student Scholarships.
To further our goals, MASNA offers the MASNA Student Scholarship program to help stimulate and promote the pursuit of marine science, in particular for topics that are current and relevant to the marine aquarium hobby.
This year there are two scholarships available; one $7,000 scholarship for a college undergraduate student (incoming and current undergraduate students), and one $7,000 scholarship for a college graduate student (incoming and current graduate students).
The 2021 – 2022 MASNA Student scholarships are made possible by our generous sponsors EcoTech Marine, Two Little Fishies, and CoralVue.
North American students, no matter where they are studying in the world, as well as students from abroad, who are studying in North America, are eligible, as long as they attend/plan to attend an accredited college or university.
This is the 14th year for the MASNA Student Scholarship Program. In total, the MASNA Student Scholarship program has contributed $84,000 to college students who have significantly impacted the marine aquarium hobby.
