Jack T.H. Fenety Conservation Scholarship

About this Award: 

The Miramichi Salmon Association offers a major scholarship for salmon research in honour of its long time former President, Jack Fenety of Fredericton.


The “Jack T. H. Fenety Conservation Scholarship” is made available each year to a selected graduate student attending a university who is conducting meaningful research about wild Atlantic salmon and/or its habitat which will have relevance for the Miramichi watershed.


One scholarship per year valued at up to $10,000 CAD will be awarded. The funds will be disbursed directly to the student and may be used for the purchase of equipment and materials, for travel expenses during fieldwork, and as a living allowance.



$10,000 CAD

Eligibility : 

Relevant research topics include, but are not limited to, aspects on carrying capacity of habitat, inter-stage survival rates, constraints on production, effects of competition, predation at various life stages, the consequences of stocking juvenile salmon and ways to improve stocking strategies.


The research can extend into the estuary as it relates to the survival of smolts or adults, but is not intended for marine research.


The work does not necessarily have to be conducted on the Miramichi, but must be relevant to the Miramichi and the objectives of the MSA and priority will be given to work carried out at the Miramichi Salmon Conservation Centre. The scholarship is for a student conducting graduate level research at a Canadian or American university.
