Announcing a new scholarship opportunity for EMS students enrolled through Penn State World Campus!

There is a new scholarship that is available for students in the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences who are enrolled through Penn State World Campus. The Founders’ Scholarship Fund in the John A. Dutton e-Education Institute provides scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in or planning to enroll at least part-time in an online academic program offered by our college.

Scholarship Award: Award amounts vary with a maximum amount of $2,500 per semester and may be renewed provided the recipient continues to meet the conditions of eligibility and funds are available. Awarded candidate(s) are selected by the Founders’ Scholarship Fund committee.

Eligibility Requirements: Must be enrolled, or plan to enroll, in an online certificate or degree program offered by the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences through Penn State World Campus as a part- or full-time undergraduate or graduate student. First preference is given to individuals within this pool who are employees of Esri, but all students are encouraged to apply.
