Military Veterans Scholarship Recipients

The AAPG Foundation’s United States Military Veterans Scholarship Program (MVSP) is designed to promote the advancement of student veterans in educational geoscience programs at the undergraduate level. The program aims to promote education and career opportunities to the veterans, aid in the transition of veterans to educational and civilian technical professions and advance and promote geoscience programs in higher education institutions.

Those encouraged to apply for these scholarships include both active U.S. Military service members (including National Guard and Reserve) or veteran members separated from active military service who have been honorably discharged and are entering or reentering a post-secondary undergraduate or program in a field of geoscience full-time or part-time at a four-year accredited college or university. Scholarship awards from $2,000-$4,000 are available and may be used for educational and expenses covering cost of attendance. For more information about the program, see requirements and guidelines.
