The purpose of this fellowship is to provide financial assistance to deserving students conducting waterfowl or wetland research in North America.
The most recent winner of this award is Kate Sinnott for her work at Utah State University. Kate’s MSc project will focus on developing techniques and best practices for the restoration of aquatic vegetation.
