Note: Students with prior NMGS Scholarships will not be considered this year due to budget limitations.
Application Deadine: 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, exceed $50,000 per year. Funds for these awards are administered by the NMGS Foundation with an endowment established from generous contibutions 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).
Starting in 2013, the process of applying for NMGS scholarships and providing letters of reference is now entirely online. This will save the scholarship committee a considerable amount of time. However, if any significant problems arise with the submission system, the prior forms are still available so that applications and letters can be mailed to the scholarship chair, either as email attachments or via surface mail.
