Graphic depicting the 2018 IVSS Stipend Drawing

This morning, 06 April, a live drawing was held to select four 2018 International Virtual Science Symposia (IVSS) projects for stipends to help offset the cost of attending the 2018 GLOBE Learning Expedition (GLE) in Killarney, Ireland, in July. During the drawing, which was held at 9:00 a.m. (MDT), GLOBE Implementation Office (GIO) Director, Dr. Tony Murphy, randomly selected the four projects.
