This program will provide fellowships to students who intend to pursue a course of study in economic geology leading to a Master of Science (MSc) and/or PhD degree, with preference given to those who will be entering graduate school following completion of a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree, or equivalent.
Individual fellowships range from $10,000 to $20,000 for the first year of graduate study.
Students from throughout the world with an expressed interest in pursuing graduate studies in economic geology are encouraged to apply.
Applicants must meet the following requirements:
Completed application forms must be accompanied by:
1. an official transcript of grades from the institution awarding the BS degree and
2. two letters of recommendation—one from the student’s undergraduate advisor or head of department, and another from a faculty member familiar with the applicant’s academic record and character.
Applications will be evaluated by an SEGF committee established solely for the purpose of selecting graduate student fellowship recipients.
Funds will be delivered to the successful applicants upon receipt by the SEGF of proof of enrollment at the graduate school selected by the student. It is anticipated that 5 to 10 fellowships will be awarded annually.
Applications, together with the supporting information, should be submitted to the address below and must be postmarked no later than February 15.
