2016 — Thanks to outstanding support from our friends in the St. Petersburg community, we were able to continue our support of future conservation leaders through the St. Pete Audubon Student Grants Program. We received many strong applications this year, and the student grant committee was extremely pleased to see the growing interest in our program. We appreciate the time and interest of all students who applied this year. We wish them success in their academic pursuits. Please join us in congratulating this year’s award recipients: Erin Kiskaddon and Samantha Schaberg.
2015 — During our Student Grants Program’s inaugural year, we received applications from several strong students. The 2015 award recipient was Ms. Caitlin Carr, a graduate student within the Environmental Science and Policy program at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg. Caitlin’s research focuses on contaminants present within seabirds in the Tampa Bay watershed. We presented Caitlin with her award during our April 2015 program. Congratulations, Caitlin, we wish you the best of luck with your academic pursuits! Thanks to our community for supporting our new program!
