A current and on-going GOMURC initiative is to promote Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) by facilitating education opportunities for underrepresented minorities (URM) student groups. For the purposes of the GOMURC regional inventory of scholarship opportunities, URM focuses on Black, Hispanic and Native American students. Financial aid is available in various forms including scholarships, loans, grants, fellowships, internships and more; too many aid opportunities to list here. We chose to focus on URM scholarships that may enable attendance at academic institutions in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico region.
