In addition to ongoing education efforts with our membership, the SWMTU chapter supports education in schools.

Since 1987, the chapter has funded the Cornelius M. Schrems Scholarship at Michigan State University. It is awarded annually to a current MSU student of the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife who works toward the mission of SWMTU. This scholarship, and its intention, was founded by Sis Schrems in memory of her husband. In 2012, SWMTU established a permanent fund at MSU for this scholarship.

Since 2005, SWMTU has supported the Salmon in the Classroom (SIC) initiative by providing financial grants of up to $1,000 per school to defray the startup costs of establishing a SIC program.
