Geoscience BC 2018 Scholarship Application Deadline Approaching!

April 25, 2018 - There is less than one week until the Geoscience BC Scholarship application deadline! The application deadline is May 1, 2018.

Geoscience BC provides up to ten scholarships to qualified students who are registered and started in a Masters (MSc) or Doctorate (PhD) program in earth science, geoscience or applied geoscience. Applicants must be working on a British Columbia-focused applied geoscience thesis topic related to the discovery or management of mineral and energy resources (minerals, energy and water).

Scholarships will be awarded to students based on the project's technical merit, the student's interest in exploration and development and his or her academic qualifications. Masters students may receive the Geoscience BC scholarship only once during their program. Successful PhD students may apply for a second year of funding provided they can demonstrate that significant progress has been made on their project.

Since 2007, Geoscience BC has awarded $470,000 in funding to outstanding earth science graduate students. You can see past examples of scholarship recipients on our website.
