New Mexico Geological Society
Scholarships & Awards

Application Deadine: extended to Friday, March 8, 2024 (usually by the third Friday in February)

The New Mexico Geological Society supports geoscience students in New Mexico and their research in several ways including scholarships, awards, discounts, and subsidies that, combined, typically exceed $50,000 per year. Funds for these awards are administered by the NMGS Foundation with an endowment established from generous contributions by several benefactors and from our membership.

Students attending qualified New Mexico institutions and studying Earth Sciences in New Mexico are eligible for our numerous scholarships, that are awarded at the Annual Spring Meeting and Fall Field Conference (see details).

The process of applying for NMGS scholarships and providing letters of reference is entirely online. This saves the scholarship committee a considerable amount of time. If significant problems arise with the submission system, please contact the scholarship chair or the webmaster (see below).
