Capt. Harry D. Vernon, Jr. Memorial Scholarships Awarded

Last week, the Presidential Challenge Charitable Foundation awarded four outstanding graduate students at the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine, Atmospheric and Earth Science the 2024 Capt. Harry D. Vernon, Jr. Memorial Scholarships.  

This year, students submitted very interesting research projects which included work on shark depredation in the Gulf of Mexico, blue marlin research in the Inter-American Seas, forage fish and their impact on the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary and the impact of the 2023 high-water temperatures in Florida Bay. All of these students plan on continuing their research after graduation and most of them plan on teaching as well. “We are proud to be able to financially assist such dedicated students whose research will contribute to the wise marine management of our marine resources,” says PCCF founder Joan Vernon.
