Scholarship Description

As part of the National Ocean Sciences Bowl (NOSB) program’s continuing effort to recognize individual achievement, the Consortium for Ocean Leadership offers the National Ocean Scholarship Program. This scholarship program is to provide tuition assistance for NOSB students who have an interest in pursuing an ocean or a marine related topic area in their post-high school education. Applicants must be high school seniors who participate in the NOSB at least once during their high school career, have a career goal in the ocean sciences or a marine-related field, and demonstrate academic success and integrity.

Apart from completing the application, qualified students are required to submit the following materials by email (PDFs preferred): an official transcript (if the student's GPA is not on a 4.0 scale, the student must provide a conversion to the 4.0 grade scale signed by their principal or counselor); an official score sheet / results from either the SAT or the ACT; two recommendation letters (one must be from an academic source, such as a teacher or a coach); two essays on assigned topics; and proof of admission to an institution of higher learning (if available currently).
