The Forensic Sciences Foundation (FSF) is pleased to announce the first winner of the 2015-16 FSF Warren-Young Scholarship: Nancy Iaukea, MEd. Ms. Iaukea is a science teacher at Pahoa High and Intermediate on the Big Island of Hawaii. She teaches grades 7-12 in a community that has faced many challenges due to lack of infrastructure, public transportation, and utility services, high unemployment, drug use, and crime rates, as well as natural disaster threats. The Warren-Young Scholarship will afford the opportunity to incorporate forensic science into the curriculum. Congratulations!
The Warren-Young Scholarship is designed to encourage forensic science education at the middle and high school level and is intended to provide funds, not less than $1,000, for teachers to purchase supplies, equipment, or reference materials to support forensic science education in teaching basic scientific principles. In addition to the $1,500 award, the FSF Executive Committee has approved the provision of a scholarship to one of the 2015-16 Forensic Science Educational Conferences.
