Emily will be graduating this May with an M.S. in Marine Policy from the University of Maine, where she is studying marine protected areas in international waters!

In 2015, Emily received the Millennium Oceans Prize from Millennium Campus Network and with that she launched her own organization called 10 by 2020. 10 by 2020 is an initiative to help bring awareness about environmental issues to youth around the world, and to foster education about these issues throughout childhood and into a person's adult years.

Additionally, while studying at the University of Maine, Emily also works as the program coordinator at the Wilson Center for Spiritual Exploration and Multi-faith Dialogue, where she facilitates events focused on peace, human rights and spiritual exploration topics.

Keep up the great work, Emily!

Meet our JFEW Alumna, Morgan DiCarlo

Posted By Jamie Spence, Tuesday, January 23, 2018
Updated: Monday, April 16, 2018


Morgan is pursing a Master's Degree at Virginia Tech in water systems engineering. Her studies focus on conducting research on how water systems are being affected by climate change. Morgan says her desire to study and research water systems came from a personal experience while growing up in a town experiencing water shortages. She became passionate on resolving the issue and even won a scholarship from the New York Association of Water Companies to continue her work.

In addition to her studies at Virginia Tech, she works as a facilitator in rural middle schools in Virginia to advocate for students to learn about engineering, and this fall she was a keynote speaker at the University of Missouri at a conference to encourage undergraduate students to consider majoring in engineering. 

Astoundingly, Morgan has also been selected as the student winner in both the American Society of Civil Engineers innovation contest, and the Waterlogic essay contest where she entered an independent project focused on water conservation. 

She ultimately hopes to find a career in consulting, as she plans to translate her research expertise into practice in order to serve communities like her hometown as they respond to water supply problems.

Colette Eustace, one of our JFEW SUNY International Relations and Global Affairs Scholar just graduated from Stony Brook University!

After graduation, Colette is moving to Honduras to work and study micro-finance. She even decorated her graduation cap to look like the Honduran flag! Her advice for incoming college students is, “Take this moment to apply to everything (fellowships, programs, awards) you see fit, because you really never know what you can achieve!”

We can't wait to see where you go from here, Colette!
