Scholarship for a Geology Student

Each year the Mount Baker Rock and Gem Club will award a $1,000 scholarship to a qualified student pursuing a degree in geology or an earth science education-related field. The scholarship will be announced/presented at the club’s annual Rock and Gem Show in March. The application must be postmarked by February 15. (Unusual events, like a pandemic, may cause suspension of the scholarship. In that case, this page will be updated.)

  • Applicants must be active students attending Western Washington University and who have reached their junior year, i.e. are in their third year of study.
  • Applicants must have declared a major in earth science.
  • Applicants must read and follow the application process in the PDF available below.
