Department of Geology Endowed Fellowships

Bluestem Fellowship

Preference given to Ph.D. students with broad interests in aspects of geology involving the upper crust itself and/or the interaction of the upper crust with the atmosphere and hydrosphere. Relevant areas of research include, but are not limited to, sedimentary geology, surficial geology, structural geology, tectonics, low-temperature geochemistry, Earth-system science, hydrogeology, and upper-crustal geophysics. It is desired that students receiving the fellowship will be encouraged to be "integrators," in that their work should encompass more than a single specialty.

Evergreen Endowed Fellowship
