A summer internship program for high school students, to engage and inspire the next, more diverse, generation of fisheries professionals
The Hutton Junior Fisheries Biology Program is an eight-week paid summer internship and mentoring program for high school students sponsored by the American Fisheries Society (AFS). Our vision is to stimulate interest in fisheries and aquatic science among underrepresented groups in the profession today. Participating students receive a $3,000 stipend and an all-expense paid trip to the Hutton Scholars Summit. Through our network of mentors, we can place students in all 50 states, Canada, Mexico, and Puerto Rico within a 45-minute commute of the student’s home.
Over the past 10 years:
Hutton Alumni (2011-2020) attribute their internship to increasing their interest in fisheries, aquatics or environmental science studies and careers!
Hutton Alumni (2011-2020) who currently are studying or have studied fisheries or other biological sciences since their Hutton Program internship!
