Kvarøy Arctic’s International Scholarship Continues to Empower Women in Aquaculture

  (NORWAY, 4/28/2023)

For the fourth consecutive year, Kvarøy Arctic , a family-owned business that responsibly farms Atlantic salmon in Norway’s Arctic Circle, is delighted to confirm the continuation of its global scholarship program for women. Since the beginning of the program, over 1000 women from more than 55 countries have applied for the scholarship.

Recognized by FastCo as one of the World’s Most Innovative Companies in 2022, Kvarøy Arctic will award one annual scholarship that supports the further education, research, and career development of a woman in the field of aquaculture. The program will provide a U$10,000 fund for education and scientific research for one recipient.

The application process is open until the 1st of July. Women from all around the world are invited to apply. The recipient of the 2023 scholarship will be announced on the 1st of August.

Launched in 2020, the scholarship’s objective is to educate women about the future of food systems and the significance of sustainable aquaculture within it.

To ensure fair recipient, Kvarøy Arctic has invited women who are already transforming the state of aquaculture to join the scholarship committee. Julie Kuchepatov from Seafood and Gender Equality (SAGE) together with Kvarøy Artic’s management team oversee the annual scholarship.

“For three years, SAGE has proudly supported Kvaroy Arctic’s Women in Aquaculture scholarship program, and we are excited to continue this effort in 2023. We cannot overstate the importance of this program which helps to usher in the next generation of women who are ready, willing, and able to lead the aquaculture sector into a bright, blue future,” explains Julie Kuchepatov who founded the non-profit initiative Seafood and Gender Equality with the goal to work towards a more diverse, inclusive, ethical, and sustainable seafood industry.

“Empowering women in aquaculture is not just a moral imperative, it’s an economic one too. By providing women with the tools and resources they need to thrive in this industry, we can unlock untapped potential and drive sustainable growth for our communities. Let’s break down the barriers and ensure that every woman has the opportunity to make a splash in aquaculture!”, shares Jennifer Bushman, Chief Marketing Officer at Kvarøy Arctic.

Kvarøy Arctic is committed to promoting gender equity in the seafood production sector by investing in women’s education and research. With a focus on preparing women for leadership positions, the company’s program aims to break down barriers and create equal opportunities for women pursuing careers in aquaculture. By empowering women to participate in decision-making processes, Kvarøy Arctic is working towards eliminating gender boundaries and fostering a more diverse and inclusive industry.
