MASNA Programs for Students and Scientists
2017 - 2018 MASNA Student Scholarships
Deadline: June 16, 2017.
MASNA offers the MASNA Student Scholarship program to help stimulate and
promote the pursuit of marine science, in particular for topics that are
current and relevant to the marine aquarium hobby.
This year there are two scholarships available; one $4,000 scholarship for
a college undergraduate student (incoming and current undergraduate
students) and one $4,000 scholarship for a college graduate student
(incoming and current graduate students).
The 2017 – 2018 MASNA Student scholarships are made possible by our
generous sponsors Doctors Foster and Smith LiveAquaria.com, EcoTech Marine,
and Two Little Fishies.
MASNA Scientific Poster Session
Deadline: July 7, 2017.
The MASNA Scientific Poster Session allows for advanced aquarium hobbyists,
undergraduates, graduate students, and scientists to submit scientific
posters on their current or past marine aquarium related research projects
to present at MACNA 2017 in New Orleans, LA, from August 25 - 27, 2017.
This includes submissions from hobbyists that would be seen as advanced
This will give the opportunity for 3,000 MACNA 2017 attendees to get up
close and personal with scientists and fellow hobbyists, and discuss marine
aquarium related science.
The 2nd Annual MASNA Scientific Poster Session is made possible by our
generous sponsors WAMAS, CORAL, and EcoTech Marine.
The Dr. Junda Lin Memorial Fund for Publishing Open Access Marine Aquarium
Q2 deadline: June 30, 2017
In an effort to assist in making marine aquarium research freely available
to all, MASNA has created The Dr. Junda Lin Memorial Fund for Publishing
Open Access Marine Aquarium Research.
The goal of the fund is to offset the cost to students of publishing
research as open access articles in order to promote the spread of
scientific ideas to not only scientists, but to anyone who is interested in
the research, by making it freely available.
Dr. Junda Lin was a Professor of Biological Sciences at the Florida
Institute of Technology and the Director of the Institute for Marine
Research (IMR). Dr. Lin’s Lab focused on the development of aquaculture
technology for marine ornamental species to offset and replace wild
collection. Dr. Lin’s lab studied the basic biological processes of several
shellfish and fish species, evaluated their aquaculture potential, and
developed cultivation technology.
