The Jacksonville Zoo International Conservation Training Scholarship is sponsored by Jacksonville Zoo and managed by Zoo Conservation Outreach Group (ZCOG). This scholarship promotes professional training for our international zoological colleagues.
Preference will be given to candidates who are currently involved in
cooperative efforts with AZA member institutions. Employees of any zoo
or aquarium outside the United States and Canada may apply. This award
may be applied toward any of the AZA Professional Training courses.
Visit the ZCOG website and download the 2015 scholarship application from a link near the bottom of the page. Only one scholarship application may be submitted per individual per year.
Please note: If you do not receive the
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.
ZCOG awards cover the following AZA training course related expenses:
