Three UVI Students Receive Marine Science Awards from OCOVI

Ocean and Coastal Observing Virgin Islands, Inc. (OCOVI) has announced that three students from the University of the Virgin Islands (UVI) have been awarded funding to help support their marine sciences research and study.  

The recipients of the 2022 Vembu Subramanian Awards, Zachary Briggs, Dishon Heyliger, and Andrew McGregor, were selected based on the strengths of proposals they submitted related to the mission and work of the U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) and the Caribbean Coastal Ocean Observing System (CARICOOS)/OCOVI.  

“It is tremendously gratifying for our students to be recognized and rewarded by OCOVI for their interest in and commitment to studying and protecting our marine resources,” said Dr. Paul Jobsis, director of UVI’s Center for Marine and Environmental Studies.
