On To the Future - GSA

published Jul 3, 2013 4:12pm
On To the Future (OTF) is a grass roots initiative of The Geological Society of America (GSA) to provide partial-funding for 125 diverse students to attend their first GSA Annual Meeting, this year in Denver, Colorado.

To qualify to be a participant in On To the Future, students must be enrolled as a geoscience undergraduate major or in a geoscience graduate program, are a member of GSA, have NEVER attended a GSA Annual Meeting and are from traditional underrepresented, ethnic/racial or disability group. We will also consider other underrepresented backgrounds (e.g., can include nontraditional students with respect to age, gender identity or expression, religion, national origin or ancestry, veteran's status, socioeconomic class, physical and mental abilities, and international origin).

The online application process for students wishing to be considered for the On To the Future program is now online. Applications close 31 July. Successful applicants will be advised mid August.
