NOAA EPP Summer Interns 2004

Karitsa WilliamsNapoleon PaxtonNOAA’s Educational Partnership Program is designed to provide financial assistance to minority serving academic institutions to support collaborative research and training of students in NOAA-related sciences through competitive processes. The program’s goal is to increase the number of students who are trained and graduate in sciences directly related to NOAA’s mission. It also seeks to increase collaborative research efforts between NOAA scientists and researchers at minority serving academic institutions, as defined by the Department of Education. Financial assistance is provided through four program components, they include: the Cooperative Science Centers; the Environmental Entrepreneurship Program; the Graduate Sciences Program; and, the Undergraduate Scholarship Program.

This summer Napoleon Paxton and Karitsa Williams from Elizabeth City State University served internships with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Center for Coastal Fisheries and Habitat Research (CCFHR) at Beaufort, North Carolina. Napoleon studied with Dr. J. Kenworthy and Dr. Patrick Biber while Karitsa was mentored by Dr. Aleta Hohn and Dr. John Hare.
