AMS Minority Scholarship
The American Meteorological Society (AMS) Minority Scholarships help support the college educations of minority students traditionally underrepresented in the sciences, especially Hispanic, Native American, and Black/African American students,who intend to pursue careers in the atmospheric or related oceanic and hydrologic sciences (marine biology does not meet this requirement). The two‑year scholarships, funded through donations made by members to the AMS 100th Anniversary Campaign, are for $3000 for a nine-month period in the freshman year and an additional $3000 for a nine-month period in the sophomore year. Second year funding depends on successful completion of the first academic year. Minority students who will be entering their freshman year of college in the fall are eligible to apply. AMS does not prepare written evaluations of either successful or unsuccessful candidates. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or hold permanent resident status.
