Harriet Evelyn Wallace Scholarship 2013-2014

The American Geosciences Institute is accepting applications for the new Harriet Evelyn Wallace Scholarship for the 2013-2014 academic year. Applications are open to all women pursuing a Master’s or Doctoral degree in the geosciences. The successful applicant will be a thesis-based, full time student and must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. The Harriet Evelyn Wallace Scholarship is solely merit-based and applicants will be evaluated on their probability of successfully completing a geoscience graduate program and transitioning into the geoscience profession following graduation.

Applicants may either be entering graduate school or already enrolled in a graduate program in the geosciences. The successful applicant will be awarded $5,000 for her first scholarship year. She will be eligible for a second year scholarship of $5,000 upon successful completion of her first year. Renewals are contingent upon request by the Harriet Evelyn Wallace Scholar and by meeting the appropriate continuation qualifications.

Applicants must submit GRE scores, all post-secondary academic transcripts, graduate academic transcripts (if applicable), CV or Resume and submit a 500-word abstract about their research interests. If the applicant is intending on pursuing graduate school, she will need to send proof of acceptance in the program before the award is funded. The successful applicant will have an undergraduate GPA of 3.25 or higher and a graduate GPA of 3.0 or higher. In addition, all applicants must be active members of at least one of AGI’s professional member societies. For a full list, please visit:
