AMS Scholarships and Fellowships
The American Meteorological Society (AMS) administers an array of graduate fellowships and undergraduate scholarships with the support of its members, corporations, and government agencies nationwide. The fellowships and scholarships help further the education of outstanding graduate and undergraduate students pursuing a career in the atmospheric and related oceanic or hydrologic sciences.
The Father James B. Macelwane Annual Award in Meteorology
13 June 2014 Application Deadline
The Father James B. Macelwane Annual Award was established by the American Meteorological Society to honor the late Rev. James B. Macelwane, S.J., a world‑renowned authority of seismology, who was a geophysicist and Dean of the Institute of Technology, Saint Louis University, until his death in 1956. The recipient of the Father James B. Macelwane award will receive a stipend of $1000 supported by member donations to the AMS 21st Century Campaign.
AMS Minority Scholarships
The AMS/Industry Minority Scholarships will award funding to minority students who have been traditionally underrepresented in the sciences, especially Hispanic, Native American, and Black/African American students. Funding for the scholarships is provided by industry and through donations made by members to the AMS 21st Century Campaign.
AMS Freshman Undergraduate Scholarship
The American Meteorological Society is pleased to announce the AMS Freshman Undergraduate Scholarship program, open to all high school students and designed to encourage study in the atmospheric and related sciences. Serving as a unique example of various sectors of our field joining together to support young, talented minds, the scholarships are being sponsored by partners in industry, as well as through named scholarships either established by an AMS member or in memory of someone. The sponsors of these scholarships have all recognized the importance in encouraging young people to enter into the atmospheric and related sciences and thus have made generous contributions in support of the 2014 AMS Freshman Undergraduate Scholarship Program.
AMS Named Scholarships
Applicants must be entering their final year of undergraduate study in the fall of 2014 and provide evidence of acceptance as a full-time student at an accredited U.S. institution at the time of the award.
AMS Graduate Fellowships
A $24,000 stipend will be presented to each fellowship recipient for a nine-month period in the 2014/2015 academic year. In addition, fellowship recipients will receive partial travel support to attend the AMS Annual Meeting.
AMS Graduate Fellowship in the History of Science
The American Meteorological Society (AMS) is pleased to invite applications for a 2014 AMS Graduate Fellowship in the History of Science, to be awarded to a student in the process of completing a dissertation on the history of the atmospheric, or related oceanic or hydrologic sciences. The Fellowship carries a $15,000 stipend and will support one year of dissertation research. Fellowships cannot be deferred and must be used for the year awarded, but can be used to support research at a location away from the student’s institution, provided the plan is approved by the student’s thesis advisor.
