Scholarships were awarded to Nicole Castro, a biology major from Miami; Diana Phillips, a marine biology major from Largo; Chad Walker, a public health science major and a resident of Loxahatchee; and Amar Singh, an education and computer science major from Plantation.

Applicants submitted an essay explaining their passion for marine science and conservation, and what threats to the oceans they plan to address while pursuing a career in marine sciences.

The partnership with the Florida Prepaid College Foundation will allow the GHOF scholarship to move forward annually, with a goal to make higher education more accessible to at-risk, economically disadvantaged students and others in need.
