Harriet Evelyn Wallace Scholarship
Congratulations to Kelly M. Deuerling, the first recipient of AGI's new Harriet Evelyn Wallace Scholarship for women in geoscience.
The American Geosciences Institute is no longer accepting applications for the new Harriet Evelyn Wallace Scholarship for the 2013-2014 academic year. We will begin accepting applications for the 2014-2015 academic year starting on October 1st, 2013. 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. In addition, she must have at least 1 year remaining in the graduate program. 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. However, if the successful scholar graduates within the first year of the award, she will not be eligible to apply for a second year. Renewals are contingent upon request by the Harriet Evelyn Wallace Scholar and by meeting the appropriate continuation qualifications.
Applicants must submit unofficial GRE scores, all post-secondary unofficial academic transcripts, unofficial 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: www.agiweb.org/members/.

Kelly M. Deuerling
AGI wants to extend a big congratulations to Kelly Deuerling who is the first recipient of the Harriet Evelyn Wallace Scholarship. Kelly (pictured here) is a PhD Candidate at the University of Florida with research focused on examining the chemical weathering of the glacial foreland in western Greenland, using tracers of subglacial hydrologic systems and oceanic fluxes of radiogenic isotopes. Kelly's academic achievements, as well as her service and research accomplishments made her a very competitive applicant for the award.
