The Salt Lake Chapter awards 3 to 4 scholarships annually. The Susan Ekdale Memorial Field Camp Scholarship - $2000 scholarship to a female student attending a Utah university or a Utah resident attending university elsewhere and attending mandatory field camp to help defray field camp expenses.

The Geoscience Research Scholarship - The award criteria applies to both undergraduate and graduate women students at Utah universities. The Research Scholarship will reimburse up to $1,000 per individual for meeting and travel expenses to present a research paper at a regional or national professional meeting.

Outstanding Geoscience Female Undergraduate Award - This award is intended for a woman who is considered outstanding by a nominating geoscience professor at a Utah university. Thus, faculty and instructors play a key role to acknowledge top performance with a $750 check.

Applications for these awards are typically due in early March. Occasionally, if funds are available, a Research Scholarship may be awarded in the fall. More information on these scholarships can be found here:
