Howard Scholarship Fund

The Howard Scholarship Fund

Dr. Matt Howard was a founding member of GCOOS and an oceanographer at Texas A&M University who developed a unique expertise in oceanography and ocean data management systems, information architecture and marine spatial data infrastructure. Following his untimely death in 2018, his many friends and colleagues sought to memorialize his professional gifts and talents for oceanographic research and data system solutions, as well as his personal intellect, generosity, enthusiasm and sense of humor. The Howard Scholarship Fund is designed to support and engage data scientists who might be interested in oceanography, or oceanographers who might have a strong interest in marine spatial data infrastructure.

The 2024 Undergraduate Fellowship has been awarded. Please check back for future opportunities.
