I think opening the criteria up a bit is a good idea. My daughter is planning on being an aquatic biologist, however she is only 11. A few years left until college. Hope the scholarship is around then. God knows I'll need every bit of help I can get.

Why limit it to biology. What about an education degree? Lord knows we need more teachers that are pro hunting and fishing and a PE degree might help expand archery in the schools.

$1000 Scholarship? Another great thing about UBNJ.

I think opening the criteria up a bit is a good idea. My daughter is planning on being an aquatic biologist, however she is only 11. A few years left until college. Hope the scholarship is around then. God knows I'll need every bit of help I can get.
Total costs for one year at Rutgers for an NJ resident was about $23K last year. Aquatic biologist? Sounds like she may want to be in the old Cook College within Rutgers .... add another $1500 - $2000 per year. And don't forget the new laptop.

Crazy, isn't it?
