Kevin stands on a vessel at sea. He is wearing waders and thick rubber gloves, and he is holding a large crab that looks to be a few feet long.

EPP/MSI participation

  • Undergraduate Scholarship Program (2013)


  • B.S. Marine Biology from Barry University, supported by the Undergraduate Scholarship Program.

EPP/MSI reaffirmed my decision not only to pursue my education in marine biology, but it allowed me to gain tremendous experience and guidance on my transition into the working environment with NOAA. EPP/MSI ... assisted me with my education ... [and] allowed me to open the doorway for others at Barry University to hopefully follow in my footsteps with applying to the EPP/MSI program.
