The NOAA Hollings Scholarship is open to all sophomores! Although it is competitive, we have had ES students win this scholarship in the past!! Please let me know if you have any questions, and I would be happy to give you more info about this program. The best part is that the deadline for the application is not until January, so you can work on the application over winter break. See below for details.
