I traveled with this year’s Hollings scholars to Washington D.C. to visit the NOAA headquarters in Silver Spring. We had wonderful speakers from all of NOAA’s offices including NOAA administrator Kathryn Sullivan. Hollings scholars receive funding for the last two years of their undergraduate career and a fully funded summer internship in any NOAA related field of study. If any of you out there are going into your sophomore year, I highly recommend you apply to this scholarship, it is an amazing and underutilized opportunity.
