Joseph Anthony Venuti Jr. was an avid reef aquarist and early mentor of the Boston Reefers Society.

Joe was a pioneer in the greater-Boston marine scene when captive fish and coral care were in their genesis. Working as an importer and saltwater aquarium store owner in the late 60s and early 70s, Joe’s store supplied ornamental fish to public aquariums, including the New England Aquarium. Leveraging his professional engineering background, he helped countless local reef-keepers further their knowledge of captive marine science.

This scholarship seeks to honor the life of Joseph A. Venuti by supporting aspiring marine science students so they can cover their educational expenses. Any student who is majoring in marine science with a focus on the conservation of reef environments may apply for this scholarship.

To apply, describe where you would focus your time and energy in marine sciences and what your ultimate goals and dreams are.
