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, sustained by endowed funds, 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.

In the summer of 2013, we offered more scholarships and higher award levels for scholarships than in previous years. We were able to do so because of the generous support of the ConocoPhillips Corporation, Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, and alumni of the G429 program.
We have instituted a tiered tuition format designed to provide the most cost–effective structure for both Indiana residents and non-residents. This fee structure has been designed with an expanded scholarship program to ensure that qualified students can participate in our courses without undue financial hardship.
