Scholarship is a merit-based award, which is $5,000 per year, up to two years.

Minority Participation Program (MPP):
MPP began in 1972 with the goal to develop the professional corps of underrepresented ethnic-minority
geoscientists in the workforce. Award recipients received funding for professional development
activities during their geoscience degree program. It has been the longest running minority program in
the Geosciences which has graduated over 1000 MPP Scholars. Unfortunately, the Program has ended.
We would like to celebrate the great success that MPP has had over the years. For inquiries about MPP,
please contact the scholarship coordinator at email@example.com.
