2023 Hutton Scholar National Summit

When: July 16th-July 20th

Where: University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff in Pine Bluff, Arkansas 

This year, the Hutton Junior Fisheries Biology Program is planning the third annual Hutton Scholar Summit which will bring all Hutton Scholars together to share experiences, learn from fisheries students and professionals and connect with other AFS members. This will be a two or three-day conference where students will hear from university faculty and students, state and federal agency employees, and be able to present on the work they have completed this summer. Students will be able to participate in networking discussions, career and college fairs and a half day excursion to a fisheries site during their time at this conference. This “mini-conference” is open to all students who participate in the 2023 Hutton Program. The goal of this meeting of Hutton Scholars is to create a sense of community and to build connections between students, universities with fisheries programs and employers working in the fisheries profession.

Travel and lodging expenses will be covered by the Hutton Program and AFS staff will work with individual students to book travel. Students will be housed in a hotel on campus for three or four nights and will have all meals provided for them during their stay.
