NEW JERSEY - Applications are being sought by the New Jersey Marine Sciences Consortium (NJMSC) for its newly establish Sea Grant College Program.

Named the Stew Tweed Fisheries and Aquaculture Scholarships program, they are in memory of Stew Tweed, a long-time Marine Extension Agent for New Jersey.

The annual awards, valued at between $1,000 and $1,500, will be given to one graduating high-school or vocational school senior and one undergraduate or graduate student pursuing studies, careers or research focused on aquaculture or fisheries. Applications will be reviewed in early April by a committee represented by appointees from the private sector, government and education and the scholarships will be awarded in mid-May.

Award recipients will be announced during the NJMSC Annual State of the Shore event on 22 May 2008 ar Sandy Hook.
