Florida Outdoor Writers Association announces recipients of its 2015 scholarships
(Gainesville, Fla.) – Three aspiring scientists, all graduate students at the University of Florida, have been awarded $1,000 each as the 2015 recipients of the Florida Outdoors Writers Association scholarship for outdoor communicators.
The winners are Jenny Adler, a PhD student in interdisciplinary ecology with a focus in journalism; Carrie Schuman, a PhD student in interdisciplinary ecology with a focus in fisheries and aquatic sciences; and Jordan Skaggs, an M.S. student in fisheries and aquatic sciences.
“This is the first time FOWA has given as many as three awards,” according to Dorothy Zimmerman, communications director for Florida Sea Grant and chair of the FOWA scholarship committee. “It reflects the highly competitive profile of the 17 entries we received from colleges and universities across the state,” she added.
The award are given by FOWA annually to recognize students whose career goals are to communicate a love and appreciation for hunting, fishing and other aspects of the outdoor experience. In the past seven years, FOWA has awarded more than $10,000 to aspiring writers, photographers and film-makers.
