...Olyvia received the 2017-18 Roland E. Dimick Memorial Scholarship, awarded to a sophomore based on her first-year performance. Spread out over three terms, it will help her further her education and allow her to have more time to volunteer and get additional real-world experiences. She continually discovers more interests, most recently via her Mexican spotted owl internship, in which she found that she enjoyed learning about birds more than anticipated.
This upcoming school year, she hopes to continue on the path of balancing academics with volunteering and making professional connections....
Olyvia is not only excited and thankful to be a recipient of this scholarship but also to be a student in the fisheries and wildlife program.
“It’s filled with great people and staff that really want students to succeed,” she said. “Additionally, there are so many wonderful resources through both the department and OSU that are made available to students. [This is] just another reason why I am still so confident in my decision to choose OSU and the fisheries and wildlife program.

Gabriel Sandoval, the recipient of the 2017-18 Carl and Lenora Bond Scholarship, is studying avian ecology. He chose the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife because of the ongoing avian research and the connection the department has with many agencies and organizations.

Meet Ameyalli Manon-Ferguson - recipient of the 2016 Jim and Bonnie Hall Diversity Scholarship!
Ameyalli Manon-Ferguson, a Junior in our department, recently received the 2016 Jim and Bonnie Hall Diversity Scholarship. [...] She traces the origin of her passion for wildlife and conservation to her early exposure to the marvelous biodiversity in Yellowstone, the opportunity to attend the Jane Goodall Environmental Middle School in Salem, and to the influence of the Native American community’s worldview with its strong emphasis on environmental stewardship. Through these experiences, she too has come to value “taking care of the Earth, since it takes care of you.“ Read the full article here.
