Minority Student Scholarship Program

The Minority Student Scholarship is granted to six undergraduate students who demonstrate a commitment to the geosciences. Qualified applicants must be a U.S. Citizen studying at an accredited university or college in one of GSA’s six regional sections (including Canada and Mexico). The funds are to be used to purchase text books, pay college fees, or attend GSA field trips or conferences.

In addition to a cash award, students will also receive complimentary GSA student membership and meeting registration for this year’s GSA Annual Meeting & Exposition, where a student awards reception will be held.
