28 February 2024

SEATTLE – The International Pacific Halibut Commission (IPHC) 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.A. students connected to the Pacific halibut fishery and its industry. Generally, a single new scholarship valued at US$4,000 per year is awarded every two years. The scholarships are renewable annually for the normal four-year period of undergraduate education, subject to maintenance of satisfactory academic performance. A selection panel of industry and Commission representatives reviews applications and determines recipients based on academic qualifications, career goals, and relationship to the Pacific halibut industry. 

The scholarship for 2024 will be available for educational entrance or continuation in Fall of 2024. Applications must be submitted via the electronic form posted under the IPHC Merit Scholarships tab on the Commission’s website Opportunities page linked here:
