The Geology Field Camp Scholarship Fund supports several students per year to attend field camp. Funding helps off-set the costs of transportation, office tents, field supplies, and computers used by the students for the specific purpose of data analysis and preparation of maps, cross sections, and reporting.

The Geology Field Camp Scholarship Fund provides an experience for future geologists to apply what has been learned in the classroom and lab to real geological fieldwork. During field camp, students work in the field by day and live in a National Forest campground. Students work independently to make and record field observations, describe and identify rocks, and determine 3D structural relationships. This requires intense and sustained focus to always know your location while interpreting and recording complex geology. The process requires use of knowledge and skills gained throughout the student?s coursework, combined with the physical and intellectual challenge of exploring complex geology in rugged landscapes.
