As announced previously, MCT has awarded 5 new Graduate level scholarships to students in Micronesia through our two scholarship programs. Each day, we will be highlighting one of them.
Today, we would like to introduce you to Ms. Carey Demapan...
Håfa Adai! My name is Carey Demapan and I am from the island of Saipan, in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI). Currently, I work for the Department of Lands and Natural Resources (DLNR) as the Public Outreach Specialist for the Sea Turtle Program. Prior to joining DLNR, I received my Associate’s of Science in Natural Resource Management at the Northern Marianas College and my Bachelor’s of Science in Marine Science at the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo.
It is with great honor and appreciation to be a recipient of the Bill Raynor Micronesia Challenge Scholarship. While working in the CNMI, I intend to pursue a Master’s of Science in Environmental Management. I aspire to continue Bill Raynor’s commitment and hope to strengthen conservation initiatives in the CNMI and throughout Micronesia. Dångkulu na si Yu’us Ma’åse to the Micronesia Conservation Trust for supporting my academic goals and career aspirations.
