Attention Students! OGS Scholarship!

by Brent Smith Current Topics

The Ohio Geological Society (OGS) is sponsoring three $1,500.00 Scholarships for the coming academic year.  Two are to be awarded to children or grandchildren of members of the OGS.  A third may be awarded to a Student Member of the Society (or a child/grandchild of a member, if no Student Member Applicants are qualified).  The awards will be determined by the OGS Scholarship Committee and announced at the May 15, 2015 meeting of the Society.  The award will be paid directly to the student, not to the educational institution.  These are one year awards, and will not be automatically renewed, however, the student may apply for any subsequent year’s OGS Scholarship(s) as they are announced.

Any scholarship awarded by the Ohio Geological Society is contingent upon the following conditions.  The successful candidates must be accepted at or enrolled in a full time undergraduate studies program at an accredited College or University for the 2015-2016 year.  They must be the biological or adopted children or grandchildren of current OGS members who have been a member for at least 5 of the previous ten years, or be a current Student Member of the Society (one of the three Awards).  To be considered for the award, applications must be complete and meet the conditions as specified within this application, including all of the information on the Identification/Qualification page.
