Katie N. Hoskinson '11, of Scotia, NY, is one of 122 undergraduates nationwide selected as a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Ernest F. Hollings Scholar.

The program provides students with awards that include academic assistance (up to a maximum of $8,000 per year) for full-time study during the nine-month academic year; a 10-week, full-time internship position ($650/week) during the summer at a NOAA facility; and, if reappointed, academic assistance (up to a maximum of $8,000) for full-time study during a second nine-month academic year. The internship between the first and second years of the award provides the Scholars with hands-on, practical educational training experience in NOAA-related science, research, technology, policy, management and education activities. Awards also include travel funds to attend a mandatory Hollings Scholarship Program orientation, conferences where students present a paper or poster, and a housing subsidy for scholars who do not reside at home during the summer internship.

A geology major and graduate of Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake High School, Hoskinson is a member of the leadership honorary Omicron Delta Kappa and Kappa Delta Sigma sorority.
