  • Charles Sivelle Scholarship/Grant Program

    Melanie Colón

    Bruce Bergbom proposed a scholarship program and agreed to work up a proposal to present to the APWS Board in 1989. Bruce announced information about the American Pheasant and Waterfowl Scholarship/Grant Program in the January-February, 1992, issue of the APWS Magazine. The program was open to all individuals interested in pursuing studies in avicultural or a closely related biological field. The amount of the scholarship/grant is decided yearly by the Board of Directors and is based on available funds. Funds for the scholarships and grants are raised by participation in the annual mail raffle, donations to the annual scholarship auction held during the convention, and donations by members. The first scholarships for students were awarded in 1992. The name of the program was changed to the Charles Sivelle Scholarship/Grant Program in 1994.
