Jesse Leavitt awarded S-STEM scholarship
Congratulations to undergraduate student, Jesse Leavitt! Jesse has been awarded $5,000 from the Scholarships for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (S-STEM) Program. Jesse, a long-time member of CGRG, is actively involved in multiple research projects. His background includes investigating mosquito control technologies, and exploring conservation genomics of the native Hawaiian crow. He has presented his research at the Tropical Conservation Biology and Environmental Science annual symposium, and at the Hawai‘i Conservation Conference. He is currently working on a technical report that will be used to assist managers responsible for the Hawaiian crow conservation-breeding program.
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation, the S-STEM scholarship will help support Leavitt’s studies as a STEM major at UH Hilo.
Way to go, Jesse!
