Tim Magnussen


The School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences is pleased to announce the establishment of the new Timothy Magnussen Memorial Scholarship for undergraduate students. Open to juniors and seniors pursuing their B.S. degree in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, this $2,000 scholarship was awarded to two students for the first time in Fall 2013.

Timothy Magnussen attended Long Island University, Southampton campus financed by student loans. While he did not major in atmospheric sciences, he was intensely interested in the field. It is Jessica Dubensky’s and her parents, Steven and Candice Dubensky’s intention to honor the memory of Jessica’s late husband, Timothy Magnussen, by creating this scholarship for undergraduate students with demonstrated financial need majoring in atmospheric sciences at the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences at Stony Brook University.


Students must have a GPA above a 3.0 to be considered for this scholarship, and junior awardees must maintain this grade point average (or higher) in order to continue receiving the funds in their senior year.
