The Dave Ankney & Sandi Johnson Waterfowl and Wetlands Graduate Research Scholarship
The award is named “The Dave Ankney & Sandi Johnson Waterfowl and Wetlands Graduate Research Scholarship”, but may be abbreviated to the “Ankney Award”. This award honors the memory of Dave and his incredible contributions to waterfowl and wetland research as well as the unending support of his wife Sandi.
The scholarship will be awarded to students studying any aspect of wildlife ecology or management in North America, with special emphasis on projects focused on wetlands, waterfowl or other game birds. The Award may be used for any research expense other than to pay a stipend for the recipient.
The Delta Waterfowl Foundation will administer the scholarship, within an endowment, and an ad hoc committee, comprised of representatives from Canadian and American government and non-government organizations, will select the recipients. Members of the Selection Committee will score each applicant/project based on the background of the candidate, the merit and importance of the project and the probability of successful completion.
