The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is honored to
announce the Dr. Nancy Foster Scholarship Program to recognize
outstanding scholarship and encourage independent graduate-level
research--particularly by female and minority students--in oceanography,
marine biology and maritime archaeology. Congress authorized the
Program, as described in the National Marine Sanctuaries Amendments Act
of 2000 (Pub. L. 106-513), soon after Dr. Foster's death in June 2000,
as a means of honoring her lifes work and contribution to the nation.
The program is administered through NOAAs National Ocean Service and
funded annually with 1% of the amount appropriated each fiscal year to
carry out the National Marine Sanctuaries Act.
Applications for fall 2001 are being solicited from March 8 through
April 4, 2001. See the website http://fosterscholars.noaa.gov/ for
details and application.
