Malcolm Oliphant Scholarship in Marine Science

Amounts and numbers of scholarships are estimates, dependent on funding. The Oliphant Scholarships in Marine Science will be awarded on the basis of excellence, as judged by the Awards Committee. Work in progress at the Marine Laboratory in Trinidad will be one factor considered in award of the scholarships. Students working on projects at the Marine Laboratory or working on marine science projects elsewhere that have implications for marine organisms are encouraged to apply. Academic promise will be demonstrated by scholastic achievement in at least two consecutive semesters of enrollment at HSU and by letters provided by two faculty members familiar with the academic achievements of the applicant. Potential or promise for a productive career in some aspect of marine science will be considered. Graduate or undergraduate students must have at least two semesters remaining to complete degree requirements for graduation with a Bachelor of Science degree or a Master’s degree.
