Scholars for the 1989–90 academic year. They are among the recipients of scholarships ranging from $500 to $2,000 under the American Geological Institute (AGI) Minority Participation Program. This designation recognizes AGU's continued strong support and substantial contributions to this program. Part of the support for this program comes from a matching grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations Sea Grant Program, which is aimed at increasing the number of minority students studying in fields related to the development of marine and coastal resources.
