THE HUTTON MENTOR

 

The principal goal of the Hutton Program is to stimulate interest in pursuing fisheries science and aquatic resources management careers among high school students from groups underrepresented in the fisheries professions, including minorities and women.

Application to the program is open to all current 11th and 12th grade high school students regardless of race, creed, or gender. Because the principal goal of the program is to increase diversity within the fisheries professions, preference will be given to qualified women and minority applicants.

 

Note: Mentor applicants are strongly encouraged to apply as soon as possible and to recruit students, by visiting classes and communicating with science teachers and guidance counselors in local high schools.
