The North American Marine Environment Protection Association (NAMEPA) and the American Salvage Association (ASA) are now accepting applications for the Marine Science Call for Papers Competition! This competition is for high school and undergraduate students who have demonstrated a passion for the marine sciences through a research project - either on marine industry, conservation, or technology. Students are invited to submit an abstract and technical paper describing their projects. Submissions will be reviewed by the education committees of NAMEPA and ASA. Winners will receive scholarship money and an invitation to an industry event as a networking opportunity, where they will be introduced to potential employers and fellow researchers.
