A grant for up to $1000 is available from the North American Native Fishes Association for projects to educate the public about North American native fishes.

The Gerald C. Corcoran Education Grant was established in memory of past NANFA President Gerald C. Corcoran, who stressed public education regarding the continent’s native fishes.

NANFA will consider funding such projects as books, brochures, posters, displays, video, Internet resources, public lectures, nature center displays, school materials and displays, and teacher training workshops.

Applicants must be members of NANFA, but non members may qualify by submit a membership application and dues payment along with their grant proposals.  Funding will be awarded on June 1, 2012, after proposals are evaluated and ranked by a NANFA review committee. Proposals are due March 31, 2012.
