This $10,000 award is given each year to a geology field camp that clearly focuses on the fundamentals of geologic mapping and field methods to assist with the summer field season. It is based on safety awareness, diversity, and technical excellence. Field Camps are only eligible to receive the award once.

All applicants will be notified in late-April regarding whether or not you have received this award.

Your complete application will consist of:
