Graduate students are eligible to apply for 8 of the projects, which are identified below, throughout the SCA Application process, and on FWS Work for Wildlife website. Projects include 43 biology or fisheries projects, 12 outreach or human dimensions projects, and 3 in other fields.
Applications are due February 22.
