PSE&G Scholarship for Advancing STEM Majors
Monmouth University
Major: Marine and Environmental Biology and Policy

Lauren Kelly has always loved the environment, especially the ocean. At Monmouth University, she transformed that passion into a career to protect endangered and threatened marine animals. A key part of Lauren’s education has focused on studying various species of fish and marine life during hands-on experiences, including aboard the University’s research vessel: “I’ve realized how much I enjoy learning and researching. My dream job is researching and rehabilitation of marine animals to protect them and increase their population. I want to make a difference in this world.”
