Geoscience Scholarships for Minority Students
from the American Geological Institute
Applications Due March 1, 2005
(Transcripts will be accepted until March 15, 2005)

For the past 33 years, the American Geological Institute has awarded scholarships to geoscience majors who are members of ethnic minority groups (Black, Hispanic, or Native American). The goal for this program is to maintain and increase the number of underrepresented ethnic-minority students in the geosciences through financial support and mentoring opportunities. Recipients of AGI Minority Geoscience Scholarships are provided with financial awards ranging from $250 to $4,000.

Undergraduate and Graduate students are eligible to apply.

Applicants must:
• be a U.S. Citizen
• be enrolled as a full-time student at an accredited college or university in the U.S.
• have declared a major in a geoscience department, such as geology, geophysics, geochemistry, hydrology, meteorology, oceanography, planetary geology and earth science education
• be a member of an ethnic minority, including Black, Hispanic, or Native American (American Indian, Eskimo, Hawaiian, or Samoan).
Applicants submit a completed application, which can be downloaded at

Deadline for all application materials: March 1, 2005 (transcripts will be accepted until March 15, 2005).
