American Meteorological Society Scholarship

February 8, 2013
Maximum Award: 
High school seniors

The American Meteorological Society offers two different scholarships for high school seniors interested in studying the atmospheric, oceanic, or hydrologic sciences. One is for minorities (including women and disabled students typically underrepresented in this field), and the other scholarship is for all interested seniors.

AMS Minority Scholarships
The AMS Minority Scholarships help support the college educations of minority students traditionally underrepresented in the sciences, especially Hispanic, Native American, and Black/African American students. The two year scholarships, funded by industry and through donations made by members to the AMS 21st Century Campaign, are for $3000 for a nine-month period in the freshman year and an additional $3000 for a nine-month period in the sophomore year.  Second year funding depends on successful completion of the first academic year.  Minority students who will be entering their freshman year of college in fall 2012 are eligible to apply.

AMS Freshman Undergraduate Scholarship

The AMS Freshman Undergraduate Scholarship program is open to all high school students. This scholarship is sponsored by partners in industry and the government to encourage young people to enter the field.
