About this Fellowship
Supports eligible undergraduates studying oceanic, environmental, biological, and atmospheric sciences, mathematics, engineering, remote sensing technology, physical and social sciences including geography, physics, hydrology, geomatics, or teacher education that support NOAA's programs and mission.
The Hollings Scholarship is an opportunity for sophomores to become part of NOAA's mission: to understand and predict changes in climate, weather, ocean, and coasts, to share that knowledge and information with others, and to conserve and manage coastal and marine ecosystems and resources.
Successful applicants come from a variety of backgrounds, but share a commitment to NOAA's mission of Science, Service, and Stewardship. Applicants should familiarize themselves with NOAA's areas of work, and be able to explain how their interests, background, and goals align with NOAA.
Up to $19,000 for academic expenses (stipend of $9500 each year), as well as a 10-week full-time paid summer internship with a NOAA facility (valued at $7000).
