The Fly Fishers International Internship Award program provides monetary support to outstanding upper level (juniors and seniors) undergraduate students who are pursuing degrees in fisheries or closely related fields. These awards may be given annually to help ensure the development of future leaders in the field of fisheries conservation. Awards are given by the FFI Board of Directors.
Awards are given to support the student’s conservation internship and may be used to help offset expenses including transportation, living expenses, tuition, projects, and research only.
Internship awards are $2000 from FFI Board of Directors. The award may be given to the entity sponsoring the internship to administer and disperse the award to the intern consistent with their policies. If given to the entity, no administrative charge may be levied. Alternatively, the award may be given directly to the intern. If the award is given to the intern, he or she must provide an accounting of the funds to the FFI at the conclusion of the internship.
