The Undergraduate Field Camp Scholarship
Are you an undergraduate student in the UA geoscience department planning to attend field camp this summer? Do you identify as part of an underrepresented group in STEM in need of funding?
Then we want to help pay for it!
The AWG Southern Arizona Chapter is excited to announce our second annual field camp scholarship for underrepresented students in the geosciences. If you identify as part of an underrepresented group in STEM, you are an undergraduate student in the UA Geosciences Department, and you plan on attending a summer field experience in 2022, you are eligible to apply for this scholarship! We will be allocating 1-2 scholarships of ~$500 each that can be used for anything from gear to tuition for a field camp or field camp alternative experience of your choice.
**International students are eligible to apply!**
The application will consist of:
(1) a 250 word statement of interest focusing on how field camp will help you reach your academic and career goals
(2) a 250 word statement that reflects on the role of diversity in the geosciences
(3) a 100 word statement of financial need
(4) a resume/CV
Please submit your written application responses and a resume/CV to the Google Form Application by 5pm on Friday, March 4th, 2022.
Additionally, please feel free to reach out to our scholarship committee, Audrey (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Emilia (email@example.com), if you have any questions/concerns, or if you are unsure whether your field experience qualifies.
