Scholarship Endowment Fund Resolution

In 2014, the WA-BC Chapter Executive Committee proposed the establishment of a scholarship endowment fund for defraying educational expenses of aquatic and fisheries science students in the Washington and British Columbia region. The fund provides three scholarships each school year; one each to an undergraduate student, a student pursuing a master’s degree, and a student pursuing a doctorate.

The scholarship endowment fund is named in honor of the late Jeff Cederholm, adjunct professor at The Evergreen State College. Jeff as his students knew him was a vocal, tireless, and effective advocate for aquatic and fisheries science education and conservation. Jeff not only understood the importance of the link between education and conservation he lived it. The proposed endowment fund is a fitting tribute and honor to Jeff’s lasting legacy as an educator and a conservationist.

The WA-BC Chapter membership approved the establishment of the C. Jeff Cederholm Scholarship Endowment Fund and the full text of the proposal can be found on our website: Endowment Resolution (PDF).
