In an effort to ensure that the best science students in the country get the best education possible, the Austin City Council has approved the creation of a $4.5 million award for a marine science education award.
This is one of two marine science awards the council is considering to ensure students get the education they need to thrive in the global economy.
The second award, known as the “Ocean Life Award”, will be awarded in June.
The city is one among the top 100 in the world in the number of marine science students enrolled in the University of Texas, according to the Council of Graduate School of Marine Science and Engineering.
The council is also considering a marine biology program, which will require students to take courses on a variety of topics related to the marine environment.
This will include diving and marine biology, as well as aquatic ecology, environmental biology, fish, fish biology, marine wildlife and ecology.
The Ocean Life Award will be given annually by the Austin Marine Science Institute, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
The award will be distributed by the Institute to students in each of the City of Austin’s three graduate schools of marine biology.
The Council of Scientific and Engineering Research (CSER) has a long history of supporting the marine sciences, including awarding several awards to marine science graduate students in 2011 and 2012.
The CSER award for the second-highest award of the awards program was given in 2012, and it was awarded to graduate student Christopher E. Stroud of the University at Buffalo.
