The American Meteorological Society (AMS) administers senior undergraduate scholarships established in memory of a loved one or to honor an individual’s contributions to the sciences. These scholarships are intended to help further the education of outstanding students who are pursuing degrees in the atmospheric and related oceanic or hydrologic sciences. For the school year beginning in the fall of 2020, scholarships will be awarded, ranging from $2000 to $10,000.
All scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic excellence; some have a particular focus appropriate to the named Honoree (see the complete list below). In addition to the scholarship awarded, winners are invited to attend the AMS Annual Meeting with partial support (complimentary registration and hotel, no travel cost included) in their senior year.
In completing the application you will be expected to provide references and transcripts and to describe yourself, your achievements, and your career goals. Note these eligibility requirements:
Applicants are responsible for keeping time to ensure that all application tasks are complete in order to submit the application for consideration by the deadline date!
The Society encourages applications from women, minorities, and disabled students, traditionally underrepresented in the atmospheric and related oceanic and hydrologic sciences.
