The Department of Geology has several scholarships available for outstanding undergraduates. These are made possible by endowment funds in the SIU Foundation and by gifts from industry. Some of our students have successfully competed for Illinois Mining and Mineral Resources Research Institute Scholarships and the National Association of Geology Teachers Summer Field Course Scholarships. Student work opportunities are available in the department and elsewhere on campus to help defray part of your educational expenses.
Scholarships are also avialable on a competetive basis through the university. Each year, over 350 incoming freshmen receive scholarships from SIU, and many more existing students received support. Please visit undergraduate scholarships for more information.
