GEOLOGY UNDERGRADUATE FIELD SCHOOL SCHOLARSHIP 
 
The Geology Club at UGA aspires to establish a scholarship for the required undergraduate field school. Every year, students travel to Cañon City, Colorado in order to apply geologic skills they have learned in the classroom. The Geology Club at UGA hopes to establish a scholarship fund for one student who demonstrates exceptional involvment in club activities and has a passion for geoscience. Funds for this scholarship will be acquired through fundraising and donations.
