Three Meteorology Students Awarded Hollings Scholarship
Three sophomores, Robert Commodari, Cameron Gonteski, and Elijah Crisden, received the Hollings Scholarship, which provides undergraduate students academic assistance (up to $9,500 per year) for two years of full-time study and a 10-week, full-time paid ($700/week) internship at a NOAA facility during the summer.
