EPP Undergraduate Scholarship Program

The goal of the EPP Undergraduate Scholars Program is to increase the number of students who undertake course work and graduate with degrees in targeted academic fields integral to NOAA's mission. This program targets students who have completed their sophomore year, attending minority serving institutions (MSIs), and have recently declared, or about to declare a major in atmospheric, oceanic, or environmental disciplines that support these sciences. (The Department of Education determines which universities are MSIs).


Undergraduate college students receive training in oceanic and atmospheric science, research, technology, mathematics, and engineering and foster multidisciplinary training. Students participate in headquarters orientation where they learn about the programmatic and research objectives and potential career opportunities within NOAA Line, Staff, and Program Offices.

The program provides successful undergraduate applicants with awards that include two years of academic assistance at $8,000 per year for full-time study; two 10-week summer internship ($650/week); a housing subsidy during the summer; travel to a mandatory NOAA Student Scholarship Orientation Program in Silver Spring, MD.; and travel to approved conferences where students present a research paper or poster. The two summer internships provide Scholars with "hands-on" reseach, scientific, and technological experience.

Students must be:
- U.S. citizens
- Full-time students
- Enrolled or plan to matriculate into the third year of a four-year degree program or fourth year of a five-year degree program
- Attending an accredited MSI within the United States or U.S. Territories; minimum 3.0 grade point average on a 4.0 scale (or equivalent on other identified scale) per term and cumulatively in all completed undergraduate courses
- Majoring in NOAA-related disciplines including, but not limited to, oceanic, environmental, and atmospheric sciences, mathematics, engineering, remote sensing technology, physical and social sciences including, geography, physics, hydrology, or geomatics, that support NOAA's programs and mission
