Students and programs in sciences, especially earth and environmental sciences, are eligible for grants. Alaska Natives and other minorities are strongly urged to apply.
Grants are awarded for a variety of expenses incurred by students. These may include internship support, travel and/or expenses related to workshops and science fairs, support needed to secure employment in science-related fields, or emergency needs.
Application may be made at any time. Requests are given immediate consideration.
Application should be made by letter from a Sponsor. A Sponsor may be a teacher, advisor, or other adult familiar with the grant applicant’s situation. The Sponsor’s letter should describe the grant applicant, the nature of the financial need, and amount of grant requested. The letter should also include the Sponsor’s and applicant’s telephone numbers and addresses. A letter from the applicant and/or other supporting material would be helpful.
