Meet Some of Our Scholars!

This year, 2020, not only marks the American Fisheries Society 150th year as a professional society, but it also marks the 20th year of the Hutton Junior Fisheries Biology Program! Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we were unable to place the vast majority of our selected students with mentors for the summer.

Of the 210 students from the United States, Canada and Mexico, we selected 24 students to participate in the 2020 Hutton Program. Of those 24 students, we were only able to place 11 in internships for the summer due to complications with work environment safety during the current worldwide pandemic. Even though this year our class is smaller than normal, we are excited that all students able to participate in the program this summer are female! We are looking forward to their work this summer in Texas, Idaho, Montana, Wisconsin and Oregon and hope that our program inspires them to choose colleges or universities to continue their passion for fisheries. Follow us on social media to keep up with all the exciting projects the Hutton Scholars worked on this summer and application updates.
