Remarkably diverse geology, experienced, award-winning faculty, a world-class field facility, and a 60-year tradition of leadership in teaching geoscience in the field form the foundation of excellence of our course offerings. Our range of field–based programs encompasses undergraduate and graduate classes, and extends through outreach to high school students, adults, and to professionals in geosciences-related areas.
Indiana University Geologic Field Station strives to lead the nation in teaching geosciences in the field, in research focused on field-based learning in geosciences, and in supporting discovery and discourse on development of best practices in field geosciences through workshops and conferences. Its range of programs, sustained by endowed funds, will encompass undergraduate and graduate classes and extend through outreach to students of all ages, and to individuals employed in geosciences-related areas.
GSA/ExxonMobil Field Camp Excellence Award
The GSA/ExxonMobil Field Camp Excellence Award for 2012 was awarded to the Judson Mead Geologic Field Station of Indiana University. The award is given in recognition of the awareness, diversity, and technical excellence of one geology field camp instructor. more
We offered more scholarships and higher award levels for scholarships for the summer of 2012. We are able to do so because of the generous support of the ConocoPhillips Corporation and alumni of the G429 program.

Tuition rates are determined strictly by student status as either undergraduate or graduate student. Non-resident (out-of-state) students are NOT charged additional tuition for Field Station courses.
Scholarship applications are made available to students once they have applied and been accepted for a course at the Field Station. Scholarships range from $100 to $1500 and are awarded primarily on the basis of academic merit.
