This year, AES was pleased to offer Young Professional Recruitment Fund diversity scholarships to 20 applicants! These early career elasmobranch researchers and managers come from all over the world, and do all kinds of awesome science! Of our 20 applicants, 13 are women. Only 3 work in the United States. 4 are the first in their family to get a higher education, and 3 identify as LGBTQIA.
Thanks to the members of our diversity and equity commiittee who reviewed all these applicants, and thanks to Alberto Roca at MinorityPostdoc for his guidance and support!
