For immediate release.

The Marine Aquarium Societies of North America (MASNA) is proud to announce
the 2016 - 2017 MASNA Student Scholarships.

MASNA is a non-profit organization composed of marine aquarium societies
and individual hobbyists from North America and abroad, totaling several
thousand individuals.

MASNA’s goals are to:
• Educate our members with online and published material, the MACNA
conference, and other sanctioned events.
• Assist in forming and promoting the growth of clubs within the hobby
while ensuring a sustainable future for the marine environment.
• Support the efforts to eliminate abuses in collecting and transporting
marine organisms through education, assistance and encouragement.
• Encourage the ethical growth of the marine aquarium hobby and support
captive breeding/propagation efforts.

To further the goals of MASNA, 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

This year there are two scholarships available; one $4,000 scholarship for
a college undergraduate student and one $4,000 scholarship for a college
graduate student. The 2016 - 2017 MASNA Student scholarships are made
possible by our generous sponsors Doctors Foster and Smith LiveAquaria.com,
Ecotech Marine, and MASNA.

This is the 8th year for the MASNA Student Scholarship Program. In total,
the MASNA Student Scholarship program has contributed $40,000 to college
students who have significantly impacted the marine aquarium hobby.
