by Jul 26, 2019

NASA awarded three graduate students at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa with $45,000 grants annually for up to three years for their contributions toward reaching science, technology and exploration goals.

Honored by the Future Investigators in NASA Earth and Space Science and Technology (FINESST) program were atmospheric science student Madeline McKenna and astrophysics students Cory Gerrity and Travis Berger.

FINESST funding is quite competitive, so receiving three awards is indeed a great achievement for UH,” said Christina Karamperidou, assistant professor of atmospheric sciences in the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST).
