Scholarship Awarded For Marine Science Research
Port St. Lucie local and Florida Institute of Technology student Eloise Cave has received the Guy Harvey Scholarship Award presented by The Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation, a non-profit organization that conducts scientific research and hosts educational programs aimed at conserving the marine environment.
In recognition and support of her academic pursuits, Cave received the $5,000 award along with a certificate designed and signed by world-renowned marine wildlife artist and conservationist Dr. Guy Harvey.
“This next generation of bright minds is bringing us one step closer to understanding what it will take to protect our fragile marine environment and ensure its sustainability,” said Dr. Harvey. “Through our ongoing support of marine research and by drawing attention to the important work of these students, the GHOF is helping to safeguard a healthy ocean ecosystem for generations to come.”
Cave is focusing her research on applying sharks’ adaptive immune system genes to discover the potential for local adaptation to environmental conditions.
Established in 2010 through a partnership between Florida Sea Grant and the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation, the Guy Harvey Scholarship Award recognizes students at Florida colleges and universities whose research focuses on the biology, ecology, habitat or management of fish in Florida’s marine environment. Since its founding, 67 students have received over $350,000 in scholarships.
