OHIO ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE AND ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
The Ohio Academy of Science established the OHIO ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE AND ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM with a grant from the Ohio Environmental Education Fund (OEEF).
These merit-based, non-renewable, scholarships will fulfill the OEEF objective of "Providing scholarships in environmental sciences or environmental engineering at State colleges and universities" as outlined in House Bill 804 that established the OEEF on October 1, 1990. Scholarships will be given to Ohio students admitted to State and *private colleges and universities who can demonstrate their knowledge and commitment to careers in environmental sciences or environmental engineering. An Academy-appointed panel will select awardees.

DEADLINE is June 1, 2011
NAGT Scholarships for Field Study
National Association of Geoscience Teachers
Each year, NAGT makes several $500 awards to undergraduate students to facilitate their study of field geoscience. These awards, previously given to students who attend a traditional summer field camp, are now available for students attending field-based courses at any time of year. The intent of the awards is to support students' participation in intensive field courses in any aspects of geoscience (including geophysics, soil science, hydrology, etc.) that focus on students practicing skills of field observation, data collection, analysis and synthesis. Awardees are selected based on the importance of the field experience in meeting their educational and career goals, the quality of the field aspects of the course, and the importance of the financial award in allowing them to participate in the program. In addition, the committee endeavors to select awardees that expand the diversity of people studying geosciences in the field and a collaboration with the Association of Women Geoscientists (AWG) funds two additional awards specifically for women.
Students must have a GPA of 3.0 or higher to apply. To do so, please complete the Application Form. You will be asked to provide:
* A 250-word essay explaining how the field-camp experience fits into your long-term academic and career goals.
* A transcript of all your college work.
* Names and contact information for two instructors who are acquainted with your work and are willing to write letters of recommendation for you (noting your ethnic origin, if applicable). We will contact them directly and ask them to submit their recommendations.
The deadline for receipt of applications is February 16th.
