Scholarship for Work on Aquatic Plants

The Western Aquatic Plant Management Society (WAPMS) announces a scholarship
to support students in their pursuit of a degree in aquatic sciences.

WAPMS is a professional and scientific society of western aquatic plant
managers and scientists. Members include research scientists, aquatic
vegetation managers, agency personnel, and industry interested in all
aspects of aquatic plant biology, ecology, and management. The WAPMS
Scholarship is supported by WAPMS members.

WAPMS will present a $1000 scholarship in 2001. Scholarship funds may be
used by the recipient to cover costs associated with education and/or
research expenses. Eligible applicants must be enrolled as a full-time
undergraduate or graduate student in an accredited college or university in
the western United States. Course work or research in an area related to the
biology, ecology, or management of aquatic plants in the West is also

All scholarship applicants will receive a one-year membership in WAPMS and a
waiver of registration fees for the 2001 meeting in Las Vegas. The
scholarship recipient will be invited to make a presentation at the annual
meeting in 2002.

personal or institutional affiliation with the applicant.
