Scientists from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) in conjunction with logistics support staff from International Outreach Services, Inc., played a key role in the selection process, and will continue to provide nurturing and guidance for each of the student fellows. The sponsorship award will cover the full cost of college tuition and applicable fees as well as related living and travel expenses. It is also anticipated that MISFP student fellows will have opportunity to gain invaluable work experience at LLNL under the supervision of Dr. Terry Hamilton (right, back row), Scientific Director-Marshall Islands Dose Assessment and Radioecology Program.
