SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

Every year the Judson Mead Geologic Field Station recognizes outstanding students from across the country who enroll in its summer programs with scholarships to help defray the cost of its courses. A number of different sources of funding are used to provide the various scholarship awards made each year. A brief description of the sources used for funding the various scholarships is provided below.

In the recent past, upwards of 60% of the students attending our courses have been awarded a scholarship. The recipients of scholarships are chosen by a selection committee composed of faculty members of the Department of Geological Sciences associated with the courses. This committee will make the decision as to which source of funding is most appropriate for the individual awards. The primary criterion for the awarding of scholarships is academic merit.

Note that a single application is used for all of the scholarships and the letter of recommendation submitted with the course application will be used in support of the scholarship applications. Scholarship awards will be applied directly to the student's Bursar's bill.
