2017-2018 Application For Scholarship for Member’s Children/Grandchildren and Student Members
The Ohio Geological Society (OGS) is sponsoring two Scholarships for the coming academic year (2017-2018). The highest award, the John Robert Lockett Scholarship, is for $ 1,500.00, and the second one will be in the amount of $ 1,000.00. One will be awarded to a child or grandchild of a member of the OGS. The other may be awarded to either a Student Member of the Society or a child/grandchild of a member. Both categories of applicants are eligible for the top award. The awards will be determined by the OGS Scholarship Committee and announced at the May 2017 meeting of the Society. The award will be paid directly to the student, not to the educational institution. These are one year awards, and will not be automatically renewed, however, the student may apply for any subsequent year’s OGS Scholarship(s) as they are announced
Any scholarship awarded by the Ohio Geological Society is contingent upon the following conditions. The successful candidates must be accepted at or enrolled in a full time undergraduate studies program at an accredited College or University for the 2017-2018 year. Applicants do not need to be enrolled as Geology or Earth Science Majors to qualify for these Scholarships. They must be the biological or adopted children or grandchildren of current OGS members, or be a current Student Member of the Society (one of the two Awards). To be considered for the award, applications must be complete and meet the conditions as specified within the application.
The eligibility requirements will be substantially the same as previous years. Any changes will be minor, and intended to expand the pool of candidates. The complete application form including the Essay topic will be available in early February. Applications will be accepted between now and April 20, 2017.
All information requested and provided in the application will be kept strictly confidential, and not shared with anyone outside the Scholarship Committee process for any other purposes. The Application process includes a step to insure the anonymity of the applicant during the evaluation by the Committee.
