(This amendment provides $425,000 GF in each year of the biennium to increase graduate financial aid for the School of Marine Science housed at VIMS. These funds are crucial not only to maintaining VIMS' competitiveness with peer institutions and for stabilizing the graduate program, but also for continuing to provide the essential capacity that supports VIMS' research programs and state advisory services which are mandated in the Code of Virginia.)
