To further its goals, MASNA offers the MASNA Student Scholarship program to help stimulate and promote the pursuit of marine science, in particular for topics that are current and relevant to the marine aquarium hobby.
This year there are two scholarships available: one $4,000 scholarship for a college undergraduate student (incoming and current undergraduate students) and one $4,000 scholarship for a college graduate student (incoming and current graduate students).
The 2017-2018 MASNA Student scholarships are made possible by sponsors Doctors Foster and Smith LiveAquaria.com, EcoTech Marine and Two Little Fishies.
This is the ninth year for the MASNA Student Scholarship Program. In total, the MASNA Student Scholarship program has contributed $48,000 to college students who have significantly impacted the marine aquarium hobby.
