Thanks to the funding of the NOAA Ernest F. Hollings Scholarship, I was able to get a 10-week experience of a lifetime here at Great Bay. I’ll be going into my senior year at Salve Regina University with field, lab, and professional experience that support my pursuit of an Environmental Studies degree.
