The Cameron Park Zoo Amphibian Conservation Scholarship is sponsored by the Cameron Park Zoo in Waco, Texas, and managed by Zoo Conservation Outreach Group (ZCOG). This scholarship may be applied only toward the Amphibian Biology, Conservation, and Management professional training course.
The Cameron Park Zoo Amphibian Conservation Scholarship was
established by ZCOG and Cameron Park Zoo in recognition of the growing
threat of extinction for many amphibian species throughout the Americas.
The Award promotes professional training in amphibian biology,
conservation, and captive management for zoo and aquarium colleagues
from countries in Latin America and the Caribbean Basin. Employees or
associates of Latin American zoological institutions or conservation
organizations may apply. Preference will be given to applicants
demonstrating past or present involvement in cooperative captive
breeding programs and/or field conservation efforts with AZA member
institutions or other regional partners. Need may be taken into account
for this award.

award and plan to take the course anyway, the scholarship application
does not represent a reserved space in an AZA course. To secure a space
in a course you must submit a completed registration form, and pay the
tuition in full. If you receive the award, your full tuition payment
will be refunded.
