The Association for Women Geoscientists will be awarding one or more scholarships totaling $6,000 for use in the next academic year. The AWG seeks to empower young minority women to obtain a career in the geoscience field. Not only do they provide a generous scholarship amount but they will also partner the winner up with a mentor in the same field for guidance and support.
To apply you must meet the following criteria:
- Be a woman who is African-American, Hispanic, or Native American
- Be a full-time student who is pursuing an undergraduate degree in the geosciences (geology, geophysics, geochemistry, hydrology, meteorology, physical oceanography, planetary geology, or earth science education) at an accredited college or university (high school students who will enter one of these fields during their freshman year may also apply)
- A contributor to the larger world community through academic and personal strengths
