The Wildlife Society is encouraging Native American, First Nation, Native Hawaiian, and/or Alaskan Native students to apply to its Native Student Professional Development (NSPD) program. The program deadline has been extended to July 7.
Successful applicants will receive support for travel to the Wildlife Society’s annual conference, which it calls “the largest gathering of wildlife professionals in North America.” Additionally, program participants will receive a one-year membership in The Wildlife Society and become members of the Native People’s Wildlife Management Working Group.
According to the program announcement, “Candidates must be members of a Native American, First Nations, or Indigenous Tribe, or identify as Native Alaskan or Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, and currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program in a relevant academic discipline such as wildlife biology or ecology.”
Additional information and complete application requirements can be found in the Wildlife Society’s program announcement.
