Alliance Conference Scholarship Application

The Conservation Alliance for Seafood Solutions is hosting its 2024 Conference on October 16-18 in Cancun, Mexico. We are excited to offer a limited number of scholarships to subsidize the registration and/or travel costs for Alliance Conference attendees from organizations with limited funding or who are from a historically underrepresented group within the responsible seafood movement. The Alliance strives to create equitable conference access for all.

MEETING INFO: The Alliance Conference will bring together leaders and international experts from across the responsible seafood movement. All sessions will be hosted in English and held on Wednesday, October 16 from 9:00 am-4:00 pm, Thursday, October 17 from 9:00 am-2:00 pm, and Friday, October 18 from 9:00 am-Noon.
