3 Florida State Students Win NOAA Scholarships

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Three Florida State students have won scholarships from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to support opportunities in related sciences, such as meteorology, biology and atmospheric science.

Pamela Bentacourt, Samantha Levell and Lauren Stuart were among 105 students across the country to be selected for the Earnest F. Hollings Scholarship Program.

The scholarships provide up to $8,000 per academic year for their junior and senior years and paid internships with a NOAA agency the summer before their senior year. It also pays the travel to the Hollings Scholarship Program orientation in May and a housing stipend for those who don’t live at home during the internship.
