Opportunities for Students with the Geological Society of America

Information from the Geological Society of America of interest to students. See your campus representative for more information. (I'm the rep for MJC).

1. 2009 Subaru Minority Student Scholarship
Follow the links for information the 2009 Subaru Minority Student Scholarship Program. The details of the scholarship and eligibility are included in the application. The deadline for submitting this application is 15 August, and we hope by receiving it now we allow you sufficient time to encourage undergraduates to apply before the summer recess. As the Campus Rep, you will make the final decision on which student application to forward to GSA.

Please contact Chris McLelland or call 1.800.472.1988, ext. 1082 if you have any questions about the scholarship.

2. Submit an Abstract for the GSA Annual Meeting
Encourage your students to submit an abstract to the GSA Annual Meeting in Portland Oregon, 18-21 October 2009. Not only do we have 162 topical sessions proposed, 40 field trips, and eight enlightening Pardee Sessions, we are also lining up a number of spectacular opportunities especially for students.

3. GSA Student Membership
GSA Student membership is an incredible value. If you have students who are not members of GSA, please encourage them to join and to take advantage of this discount: Join online and save US $5 by using promotion code: Student09. Membership dues are only US $25 with this offer.
