The American Geosciences Institute is proud to announce that applications are open for the 3rd annual Harriet Evelyn Wallace Scholarship. The Scholarship was established from a bequest given to AGI by Harriet Evelyn Wallace, who was one of the founding members of the Geoscience Information Society (GSIS). This scholarship is for the support of female graduate students in the United States studying the geosciences. A new scholar is named each year, and every scholar is eligible for up to two years of support. The current annual award is $5,000.
This year, we will be giving the award to one qualified Master’s student studying geoscience. PhD applications will not be reviewed this year. The application deadline is January 5th, 2015. The successful applicant will be a thesis-based, full-time student and must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. The Harriet Evelyn Wallace Scholarship is merit-based and applicants will be evaluated on their probability of successfully completing a geoscience graduate program and transitioning into the geoscience profession following graduation.
