Scholarships for Geoscience Majors

Geoscience is a broad category that includes the disciplines of geology, geophysics, oceanography, planetary science, meteorology, environmental science and soil science, among others. So it's fitting that there are a variety of scholarships available to geoscience majors. Among them are scholarships offered by government agencies, professional groups, business organizations and individual schools. These scholarships are often merit based; although, financial need, ethnic background or gender also may be considered. Applicants should be prepared to submit a personal statement, official transcripts and letters of recommendation.
