Tribal, U.S. State and U.S. Federal Employee Scholarship

Tribal, U.S. State and U.S. Federal Employee Scholarship

Due to decreases in federal and state funding for natural resource agencies, many practitioners living in the United States may struggle to find sufficient funding to attend the event. In response, the Pathways Team is offering a limited number of small grants for the Pathways conference and training. These scholarships are designed to cover the cost of conference registration (value of $550 USD) for Tribal, U.S. Federal and U.S. State agency employees.


Successful applicants will be awarded a voucher to cover the full cost of registration for the conference ($550 USD).

To be eligible for a Tribal and U.S. Agency Scholarship, the applicant must meet the following criteria:

  • The applicant must be a Tribal employee, or an employee of a U.S. Federal or State natural resource management agency in a junior or midlevel position.
  • The applicant is encouraged to submit an abstract for presentation at Pathways, but it is not required.
  • The applicant must demonstrate significant need for the scholarship.
  • Applicants must demonstrate their ability to match funds provided through this grant in order to cover the remainder of the costs (lodging, travel, incidentals, additional trainings, etc.)
  • The applicant must have a primary focus on some aspect of human dimensions of fish and wildlife research, management, or policy.

While having an abstract submitted is not a requirement for application or award, preference will be given to applicants with accepted submissions related to salmon recovery.

Application review will be double-blind.

How To Apply:

This scholarship is closed to new applications.

Please note, successful applicants will be responsible for covering the cost of lodging, travel and other incidentals independently.
