Sophomore | Major: Marine Biology
"My internship for the NOAA Hollings Undergraduate scholarship will take place this summer for ten weeks. I will be at one of the numerous NOAA facilities where I will perform research under the guidance of a mentor for nine weeks. When my research is complete I will then present it along with all of the other scholarship recipients. Although the selection process for internships has not yet occurred, I do have some possible options in mind. As a Marine Biology major, I am particularly interested in conserving the ocean. I am hoping to intern at one of the Marine Protected Areas where I could potentially research the effects of ocean acidification and increased temperatures on coral health or the effects of marine debris on organisms in the ocean. I am very excited to work with NOAA and I am looking forward to the research and the experiences of this summer!"
