The Dave Ankney & Sandi Johnson Graduate Research Scholarship was established in 2013. Two scholarships are awarded annually to graduate students working on waterfowl/wetland issues in North America, one to a MSc candidate and one to a PhD candidate.
The Delta Waterfowl Foundation administers the scholarship and an ad hoc committee, comprised of representatives from Canadian and American government and non-government organizations, selects the recipients.
