Lee Allison Memorial Scholarship
Established to recognize an outstanding graduate student enrolled in the Department of Earth, Geographic, and Climate Sciences. Eligible recipients will have a minimum GPA of 3.5, strong research skills, and demonstrated entrepreneurial leadership in the College of Natural Sciences, greater UMass Amherst campus or outside the university. Example of entrepreneurial leadership may include, but are not limited to, developing novel approaches to k-12 geoscience education, volunteering for science organizations and youth groups to promote enthusiasm for science, developing new software to streamline data processing for a specific geoscience discipline or participating in workshops, conferences, or state and congressional committees to promote the integration of science with the public policy. Preference will be given to students who demonstrate a strong commitment to science literacy and how it is used for the public good in their graduate research and outreach.
