Student and Mentor Applications for the 2013 Hutton Program are now available online: www.fisheries.org. Click on the "Hutton Program" bullet on the left-hand side of the AFS home page, and then look under, "Students and Mentors." The Deadline is February 15, 2013.
The Hutton Program is a summer mentoring program for high school students in 11th and 12th grade, sponsored by the American Fisheries Society. Each Hutton Scholar is matched with a local fisheries professional for a summer -long internship, and receives a $3,000 scholarship and an AFS student membership. Because the principal goal of the Hutton Program is to increase diversity within the fisheries professions, qualified women and minority applicants are strongly encouraged to apply.
