Scholarships and Research Funds
Charles Gildersleeve Geography Scholarship
If Chuck didn’t create the construct of being student centered in all that we do as faculty, he certainly lived this notion with passion and professionalism each and every day. For many of us he was a mentor, model, and inspiration.... John Christensen, 2009
The Steven J. White Fund is a fund that has been built by the generosity of friends and alumni of the Geology Program. This fund is designed to help support undergraduate research in the geosciences. Majors can apply for support of their research (travel, equipment, analyses, etc.) by submitting a short proposal to their advisor. Proposals can be submitted at any time throughout the year.
Field Camp Scholarships
The Geology Program has funds to help support majors attending an appropriate field camp. To be eligible, students must be enrolled in an approved field course. Amounts are variable depending on the amount of money available and the number of applicants. Please see an advisor for more information. In order to be considered students should let any one of the faculty know in the spring semester as soon as they have been accepted to a field camp.
