Aquarzon Research Scholarship

At Aquarzon, we believe that the knowledge is empowerment. While there are many researches carried out in the fields of medicine, agriculture and aquaculture, only a very small percentage focuses on aquarium algae which negatively affects a huge majority of aquarists. 

We believe that this specific area requires much more research as further research can lead to key findings that can provide a more complete and accurate understanding on the exact root causes of algae to enable the potential of formulation of a more effective solution and treatment. 

This area provides students the big opportunity to make a positive difference and impact to the aquarium industry and aquarium hobby field via research. As such, is pleased to announce our scholarship, Aquarzon Research Scholarship, as part of our movement to assist students who wish to persue the research of aquarium algae to not only achieve their educational goals but to also make a positive contribution to the aquarium hobby field and aquarium industry that generates economical, social and well-being benefits.
