Hi Brother Yusuf,
I am the Hutton Program/Continuing Education Coordinator at the American Fisheries Society (AFS.) Your name was given to me by one of our members, who suggested you might know of students who would be good candidates for the Hutton Program. She also mentioned you might have suggestions for possible Hutton funding. The Hutton Junior Fisheries Biology Program is a summer mentoring program for 11th and 12th grade high school students, sponsored by AFS. Since the principal goal of the program is to stimulate interest in careers in fisheries science among groups underrepresented in the fisheries professions, qualified women and minority applicants are strongly encouraged to apply. Each Hutton scholar receives a $3,000 scholarship award. Please contact me if you would like to learn more about the Hutton Program.
Thank You,
