Support Student Travel to LACFC
Next week fisheries scientists and students are gathering in Cancun, Mexico, for the first Latin American and Caribbean Fisheries Congress (LACFC). About one-third of the attendees are students, with the majority of these students traveling from countries and universities where student travel funding is difficult to find or non-existent. In many cases, student travel will be paid for out-of-pocket by the students themselves. We are making one final request of AFS members, friends, and colleagues to donate to support student attendance. These funds will go directly to offset registration costs and, if enough funds are raised, to provide additional travel support.
Please donate any amount using the link below to make a difference in a student’s future today! You can help ensure that up and coming fisheries students can attend the LACFC regardless of income.
