We are extending the application deadline!
For students having a college major in the biological, ecological and/or entomological field, seeking degrees relevant to arthropod control, and with a particular emphasis on Public Health, we encourage applying for the T. Wainwright Miller, Jr., FMCA Scholarship.
The Cyrus R. Lesser Memorial Scholarship Fund is set up to foster students interested in learning more about the field of mosquito control and vector biology.
Please visit the FMCA Scholarships page for further explanation of the available scholarships and the application. Applications are due no later than October 12th, 2020.
*** 92nd Annual Conference Update ***
Due to concerns about the safety of our members and presenters, the FMCA Board of Directors has voted to cancel the in-person part of the FMCA Fall Meeting, November 16-18, 2020, in Duck Key, FL. We are exploring virtual platforms to provide a forum to share research and collaborate with our mosquito control colleagues. We welcome volunteers and those with expertise in virtual platforms to participate in the FMCA (Virtual) Fall Meeting.
We look forward to announcing further details in the near future.
