Over the years, the University of Reading, UK and the School of Meteorology (SoM) have shared a common goal; to educate the next generation of exceptional meteorologists. For almost 20 years the universities have participated in an exchange program, encouraging students to travel overseas and enrich their undergraduate studies. Each spring a group of students from the SoM heads off to Reading for one semester, and each fall a group of University of Reading students joins us here in Oklahoma for a whole school year.
Students who receive the prestigious Hollings Scholar title are granted many opportunities over the course of their undergraduate careers. This year’s group of seniors has three Hollings Scholars and over the summer they all completed a research project with various weather research and forecasting entities around the country.
