Scholarship Fund

Our Mission

Our mission is to ensure healthy sport fisheries by providing resources to the next generation’s brightest marine science students

Why Scholarships?

Science is at the core of formulating all our policy decisions, so helping to ensure the best and brightest of the next generation have everything they need to continue their education is a win for marine resources and for anglers.

CCA Maryland's Scholarship Program is yet another way that we as anglers, and advocates for conservation can invest in the next generation of marine scientists and prepare them to be the leaders of tomorrow.


Where will the Scholarship Funds go?

The CCA Maryland Scholarship Committee will oversee the raising and direction of all funds, with the full oversight of the CCA Maryland Board of Directors.

At this time, initial funds raised will be gifted to the University of Maryland's Marine Estuarine Environmental Sciences Graduate Program (MEES), to specifically support scientific initiatives that will directly benefit the health of our resources and recreational fishing

How do I donate to the fund?

The donation portal allows you to make an online donation of any amount of your choosing.  An electronic payment will be accepted via PayPal using your credit card.  You will also find instructions for making an "offline" payment through the portal.
