These prestigious scholarships provide students with an academic award of $9,500 per year for two years of full-time study. The Hollings Scholarship provides a 10-week, full time, paid summer internship opportunity at any NOAA facility nationwide. The EPP/MSI Undergraduate Scholarship offers two paid summer internships, one in a NOAA office in the Silver Spring, Maryland, metro area, and one at any NOAA facility nationwide. All scholars also receive funding to present their summer internship research at two national scientific conferences. Note that although the Office of Education expects that all summer 2023 internships will be conducted in person and onsite at a NOAA or NOAA partner facility, final determinations will be made by mentors at their respective locations and based on NOAA's COVID-19 Community Level Mitigation Measures. These measures will remain in effect until further notice and should be referenced when conducting the pre-internship site visit and the summer 2023 internship. Read about the past virtual summer internships here.

In April of 2022, the NOAA Office of Education selected 127 Ernest F. Hollings Undergraduate Scholars and 12 EPP/MSI Undergraduate Scholars, hailing from a total of 84 different campuses in 33 U.S. states and Washington D.C. Next year's class, the class of 2023, will be the 19th class of Hollings scholars and the 23rd class of EPP/MSI undergraduate scholars. Many scholarship alumni have gone on to work full-time at NOAA, while others have worked in areas of the government, in academia, or in the private sector.
