In order to apply, students must have achieved a B or higher in Structural Geology, Sed/Strat, and Mineralogy.
Applications must include a paragraph detailing geologic interests as well as a letter of recommendation from a faculty member of their department.

In order to receive financial aid from UW, students must be enrolled as degree-seeking students at the University of Wyoming. It is possible to enroll as a degree-seeking student for the summer, but the process takes several months. Students are encouraged to START EARLY (January) in their search for financial aid. Other sources may include: NAGT, the National Association of Geology Teachers, which annually awards scholarships to students who are attending a recognized field course. Information and application forms can be found at the NAGT website.
