Office of Education Scholarships
Our student scholarship programs provide opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to gain hands-on experience, pursue research, and educational training in NOAA-mission sciences.
The Undergraduate Scholarship Program provides an opportunity for rising junior students to study disciplines relating to the NOAA's mission. Students attending Minority Serving Institutions (Hispanic Serving Institutions, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Tribal Colleges and Universities, Alaskan-Native Serving Institutions, and Native Hawaiian Serving Institutions) receive appointments to approved NOAA offices and sites upon acceptance to the program.
The Hollings Scholarship Program provides successful undergraduate applicants with awards that include academic assistance (up to a maximum of $9,500 per year) for full-time study during the 9-month academic year; a 10-week, full-time internship position ($700/week) during the summer at a NOAA facility; and academic assistance (up to a maximum of $9,500) for full-time study during a second 9-month academic year.
The Educational Partnership Program with Minority Serving Institutions provides training for graduate students at NOAA Cooperative Science Centers.
