WALPA Student Scholarship Applications Due

April 22, 2022

In 2022, the Washington Lakes Protection Association will offer three student scholarships.

  • The Nancy Weller Memorial Scholarship for a Ph.D. graduate student for $1,250.
  • The Dave Lamb Memorial Scholarship for a M.Sc. graduate student for $1,000.
  • The WALPA scholarship to an undergraduate student for $500.

All three scholarships will also provide additional funds to cover registration and two nights’ accommodation for each recipient at the annual meeting.

Student scholarships will be awarded to further our understanding of the limnology, hydrology, ecology, management, and restoration of lakes in Washington and Idaho. Applicants must be part- or full-time undergraduate or graduate students at an accredited college or university in Washington or Idaho. Recipients shall use scholarship funds to cover expenses directly related to their research. Students are expected to attend the annual conference to present their research findings and interact with the WALPA membership. All scholarship applications will be reviewed by the Scholarship Committee, composed of individuals from academia, industry, and government. Committee members who have a personal or institutional affiliation with the applicant will not judge applicants. Student scholarship winners will be selected based on the quality of their research topic, its significance to lake science as described above, its relevance to the applicant’s interests and career goals, and for following the application directions.

Applications are due by 17:00 PDT on APRIL 22, 2021. The Scholarship Committee will contact applicants by mid-May to let them know their application’s status.


Student applicants must provide the following items:
  • Statement of research interests and career goals (maximum of 3 pages). The statement must explain why the proposed research is important to the field of limnology and/or lake management and include an itemized budget and budget justification that explains the intended use of the scholarship funds
  • 1-2 page resume
  • Recent transcripts of all college/university course work (official copies not required)
  • Letter of recommendation from the student’s academic advisor, should be sent as a PDF file directly to the committee chair
All applicants should send materials in a single Adobe Acrobat PDF file clearly identified by the applicant’s last name to Jen Oden, chair of the Scholarship Committee, at jen.oden@snoco.org.
