Robert E. Gernant Memorial Scholarship

The Robert E. Gernant Memorial Scholarship provides support for an undergraduate Geosciences major engaged in field camp or field coursework. Criteria include:

  • Undergraduate major or intended major in Geosciences
  • Engaged in field work

Preference will be given to a paleontology student.

Applications are typically accepted in January and February and are paid the following summer or fall unless a student is graduating in May. E.g. most recipients chosen in February 2024 will receive payment in summer or fall 2024.

There is a single common application for geosciences students to complete in order to be considered for all geosciences scholarships and awards. For the 2024 calendar year, undergraduate geosciences students should complete this application by the February 11, 2024 deadline.
