The International Pacific Halibut Commission funds several Merit Scholarships to support University, Technical College, and other post-secondary education. The scholarship fund has been established to assist the further education of Canadian and U.S. students connected to the halibut fishery and its industry. Generally, a single scholarship valued at $2,000 (US) per year, will be awarded. The scholarships are renewable annually for the normal four-year period of undergraduate education, subject to maintenance of satisfactory academic performance. A committee of industry and Commission representatives will review applications and determine recipients based on academic qualifications, career goals, and relationship to the halibut industry. The scholarships for 2010 will be available for educational entrance or continuation in Fall 2010. Additional questions can be directed to either Laura Black (206) 634-1838 (ext. 201) or Bruce Leaman (ext. 203). Applications are available through the Commission offices and must be received by June 29, 2010:
