Four SoM Undergraduates Awarded Ernest F. Hollings Scholarships
SoM undergraduates, Addison Alford, Conor McNicholas, Dana Mueller and Andy Wade have been awarded NOAA Ernest F. Hollings Scholarships.
The Hollings Scholarship Program is competitive and prestigious. The scholarship awards are quite generous and include academic assistance for full-time study during the 9-month academic year; a 10-week, full-time internship position during the summer at a NOAA facility; and, if reappointed, academic assistance for full-time study during a second 9-month academic year. The internship between the first and second years of the award provides the Scholars with "hands-on"/ practical educational training experience in NOAA-related science, research, technology, policy, management, and education activities. Awards also include travel funds to attend a mandatory NOAA Scholarship Program orientation, conferences where students present a paper or poster, and a housing subsidy for scholars who do not reside at home during the summer internship.
