NAGT Scholarships for Field Study Application Form

Application Deadline: February 14

Advanced undergraduate students with a GPA of 3.0 or better are eligible for $750 scholarships to help defray the cost of a field course in geosciences.

Review of applications will take approximately four to six weeks. To be eligible for an NAGT scholarship, a student must attend a field course in geosciences that is at least a total of four weeks in duration (it is not necessary that these be consecutive) and that engages the student primarily in field work, rather than classroom work. Field courses can be face-to-face, virtual, or hybrid.

Please complete your application and submit your accompanying materials using this form. All fields are required unless stated otherwise. Note that if you navigate away from this page without submitting the form, any work you have completed will be lost and not submitted.

  • You must be an advanced-level undergraduate student with a GPA of 3.0 or better
