The Kerry St. Pé BTNEP Marine Biology Endowed Scholarship
The scholarship was developed in recognition of Kerry St. Pé’s distinguished career as director of BTNEP and his lasting contributions to the preservation of Louisiana’s most precious estuary and the rich culture associated with it. The Barataria-Terrebonne Estuary Foundation (BTEF) and friends of St. Pé have endowed the scholarship in Marine Biology with a gift of $13,000 to the Nicholls State University Foundation. With additional gifts to the endowment, the amount awarded can be increased.
The scholarship of $325 per semester is awarded to a full time student enrolled in Marine Biology at Nicholls State University. The recipient will have achieved sophomore standing or higher, including graduate students, with a 3.0 grade point average. First consideration will be given to a resident of one of the sixteen parishes that make up the Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary.
