The Department of Marine and Environmental Sciences at Nova Southeastern University (DMES-NSU), home of the National Coral Reef Institute and situated in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, offers two 2-year scholarships for highly-deserving Master of Science students. Each scholarship carries a bursary of $16,000 that can be either used towards tuition or salary. Recipients must register at NSU for their degree; transfers from other institutions will be considered.

Students wishing to apply are encouraged to peruse the DMES-NSU website (http://cnso.nova.edu/overview/faculty-staff-profiles/index.html) to find a sponsoring faculty member or research scientist,who will submit the final proposal to committee. Students need to contact their chosen sponsoring faculty/research scientist and provide them with their CV with GPA (undergraduate, and/or graduate),  two letters of reference, and a project proposal (developed together with the sponsoring faculty member/research scientist at DMES-NSU). An independent committee within DMES will evaluate proposals and suggest the winners to the Department Chair, who will then notify recipients.

Deadline for proposals is November 15, 2016. Scholarships will be disbursed in January 2017. Enrollment will be processed over December 2016. It is thus expected that the awarded student engage fully in the enrollment process over December by providing transcripts and other required information.

Finished proposals, limited to 5 pages in length (plus letters of reference, CV, etc.), need to be sent by the sponsoring NSU faculty member/research scientist, together with their own letter of recommendation for the project, to the Department Chair Dr. Bernhard Riegl (rieglb at nova.edu).
