Future Generation of Geoscientists Scholarship

For newly admitted students in the Fall 2019 and 2020 semesters, the Scholarships for a Future Generation of Geoscientists at Florida International University is funded by the National Science Foundation. The Program’s purpose is to increase the number of people trained in geoscience. Employment of geoscientists is expected to increase about 13% from 2016 to 2026, faster than the 7% increase for all other occupations combined (according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics).

Scholarship application is open to students admitted to undergraduate Geosciences majors at Florida International University for enrollment in Fall 2019 and Fall 2020. The scholarship is renewable for up to four years when the student maintains the eligibility requirements. 

Scholarship Activities that Support Success

  • Earning up to full-time tuition (30 credits a year)
  • Receiving guidance from a peer and a faculty mentor
  • Working at internships and/or as student researchers
  • Attending national scientific conferences
  • Participating in a weeklong geoscience field excursion in the Appalachian Mountains in early May
