Georgia Association of Marine Education Annual Conference Scholarship Program

Applications must be submitted on or before September 30, 2023

Recipients will be notified by October 10th, 2023


The Georgia Association of Marine Education (GAME) envisions a collaborative community of educators, scientists, and concerned citizens. The group provides networking opportunities for its members, equips educators to teach marine science concepts more effectively, and celebrates the wonder of the aquatic systems of Georgia.

To help fulfil this mission, GAME offers scholarships to offset the cost of attending the annual conference. These scholarships cover Conference Registration (approximately a $125 value) and do not include cost of travel or lodging for the conference.  All recipients are required to submit an article or classroom activity for publication in the GAME eNewsletter.  Applications submitted after the September 30th deadline will not be considered.  All applications will be confidential and only reviewed by the Scholarship Committee members.  If the applicant is unable to attend once the scholarship is awarded, the applicant must contact Trish DuBose ( immediately in order to provide an opportunity for the scholarship to be awarded to the next qualified applicant.  

 The following scholarships are available:

  • Margaret Olson Memorial Travel Scholarship (Coastal Connections):  Awarded in memory of Margaret Olson to a GAME member who made the coastal connection by bringing the coast inland if the individuals could not make their way to the coast. 
  • New Membership Scholarship (Expanding Audience):  Awarded to an individual seeking GAME membership for the first time.
  • GAME Conference Scholarship:  Awarded to a current GAME member with a financial need to offset conference costs.
