The purpose of the Flyfisher's Club of Oregon Graduate Scholarship is to provide support for graduate students pursuing a course of study involving any one of the endemic wild stocks of fish within watersheds of the State of Oregon.
The award is provided through a generous annual donation by the Flyfisher Foundation.
To be eligible, students must:
- qualify for regular admission to a graduate degree program in one of the following colleges:
- College of Agricultural Sciences
- College of Forestry
- College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences
- Nominations from relevant interdisciplinary programs will also be considered
- pursue a course of study involving any of the endemic wild stocks of fish within watersheds of the State of Oregon. Research topics might include life histories, diseases, population dynamics, inter-relationships with other aquatic species, essential habitat needs, or management and restoration approaches.
Financial need shall not be a criterion in making this award.
It is the Graduate School’s policy that when nominating current undergraduates for Graduate School awards, the nominees must:
- have submitted/completed an application for graduate admission (with the exception of transcripts and other documents that are not yet available), and
- be considered regularly admissible with respect to OSU’s minimum academic admissions requirements.
One scholarship valued at $4,750 will be provided during the 2019-20 academic year (3 installments, fall, winter, spring). All scholarships made under this program will be for one academic year. Attendance for less than the full academic year will result in prorating your award.
Nominations must be received in the Graduate School by 5pm, March 1, 2019. Award will be announced by June 29, 2019.
Unit heads/chairs from each degree program (as defined by university major code) may nominate no more than one student (total) per award cycle, and must provide complete document packets containing all materials listed below (including transcripts.) Incomplete nominations will not be reviewed.
The following materials are required for nomination and are uploaded as one (1) PDF document:
- a letter of nomination from the department head or chair or interdisciplinary program director that demonstrates the candidate's merit and the relevance of his or her research focus as meeting scholarship eligibility criteria;
- two additional letters of recommendation;
- the student's curriculum vita or résumé;
- the student's statement of academic objectives; and
- copies of transcripts of all prior work must accompany the nomination. [Note: transcripts must be provided by the nominating department or graduate program.]
