Nunley-Holliday Atmospheric Science Scholarship

I understand how difficult it is to pay for college! From tuition fees, to book costs, to cost of living, college can get downright expensive, and every little bit of money helps. I and Christopher Nunley from Texoma Weather have decided to team up and award a $500 scholarship to an individual who is either a prospective or current college student. Regardless of your current major or degree of interest, you can send in an application for this scholarship. As current college students, we both understand how money can often be an issue, and we want to simply make a difference, regardless of how small of a difference that may be. Our goal is to one day offer scholarships to students all over the world and provide them a way to receive a quality education at a much cheaper cost. Please allow us to make a difference in at least one individual’s life.

You have until July 1, 2014 to apply for this scholarship, and the money will be awarded to the recipient before the 2014 fall semester.

To be eligible to apply for the Nunley-Holliday Atmospheric Science Scholarship you must: 

  • be a U.S. citizen 
  • be currently enrolled or accepted in a four-year academic program at an accredited college or university or university within the United States or U.S. territories

To all of the Firsthand Weather and Texoma Weather audience out there, I ask you one favor!! Please share this article to get the word out about this scholarship and tell your friends and family who may qualify for this money. You can submit your application to, and we will send an immediate response acknowledging that we received your application. We will announce the winner of this scholarship on August 1, 2014.

Without you and all of your support, there would be no way that any of this would be possible! It’s because of you that we will have the privilege of making a difference in at least one individual’s life.
