Award Recipient


Basic Dive Training Grant, sponsored by Donations to the WDHOF scholarship fund

Kaylyn Zipp

Kay is a first-generation college student working on her Master’s in Wildlife and Fisheries Resources at West Virginia University. Her thesis examines Channel Catfish populations and differences in their thermal plasticity through bioenergetics and transcriptomics. It has always been her dream to learn how to dive so she could trade her experimental tanks for the open water and observe how fish alter their behavior in response to abiotic stress. This training grant will allow that dream to become a reality while also enhancing the breadth and impact of her research.
