Diversity and Equity Scholarship

NAISMA supports a culture of inclusion through all of our programs, communications, and work to improve biodiversity every day.

Past environment and conservation leaders have not always created equitable opportunities for people who are Black, Indigenous, Persons of Color (BIPOC), 2SLGBTQIA+, or other marginalized persons. Addressing the challenges of invasive species now and in the future will require multidisciplinary and multicultural collaboration to the fullest extent possible. To that end, NAISMA aims to connect its support for invasive species managers alongside civil rights. 

NAISMA’s Annual Conference Diversity and Equity Scholarship was founded to foster more inclusive exchanges among invasive species managers, outreach professionals, researchers and other professionals who work with invasive species, as well as provide professional development opportunities for emerging natural resource leaders who come from historically marginalized communities.

The Scholarship Provides:

• Base registration fee for the NAISMA Annual Conference
• A complimentary 1-year membership to NAISMA

Nomination Criteria:

• Nominate a person, from any qualifying group, who is interested in attending the meeting.

• Self-nomination is accepted

• Applicants do not have to be current NAISMA members

• Applicants may be invited to discuss how NAISMA can support more diversity and inclusion in invasive species management

The NAISMA IDEA Committee will review the applications on the fourth Thursdays of each month and will accept applications until they are filled. Application acceptance will be based on the evidence of applicants’ efforts put into responses to the prompts below.
