Our first year, in 2003, we provided $3,500 to help five students participate in a Tropical Ecology Field Sciences course in Costa Rica. Since that first year, we have awarded over $524,000 on behalf of 779 students. We depend on our donors' SUPPORT to help fund these enrichment opportunities for current students.
For summer 2020, a total of $7,700 was distributed on behalf of 13 students. Five of these students participated in programs offered remotely and the other eight completed online requirements for OPRFHS Field Sciences courses. For summer 2021, almost $22,000 was distributed on behalf of the 20 students listed below. Since our first awards in 2003, more than $524,000 has been distributed on behalf of 556 students, including the $19,000 in grants listed above.
