2017 Travel Scholarships to be Available
By Michael Gray, Kentucky Dept. of Fish & Wildlife Resources
The Geoffrey Schneider Travel Scholarship was established in honor of an ACI member who passed away after a battle with kidney cancer in July 2006. Schneider was the Southern Region Conservation Education Supervisor for the Nevada Department of Wildlife. He was widely recognized for his outstanding contributions to inform and educate people about Nevada’s wildlife and natural resources.
Schneider understood the value of face-to-face discussions about common problems and new opportunities. He knew that people in the conservation communication field could become more effective by interacting with their colleagues. For those reasons, he, as much as anyone, believed in ACI’s annual conference.
The goal of the scholarship fund is to enable more individuals to attend ACI conferences.
Details regarding scholarships for the 2017 conference will be announced soon.
