Each year, students are nominated for the scholarship by their advisors on behalf of the Jackson School’s Department of Geological Sciences. Across campus, there is a pool of 2,000 qualifying (GPA 3.75+) students from which a fraction are awarded the scholarship.

“The recipients of this prestigious merit-based award are the best and brightest in the UT and JSG student body,” said Daniel Stockli, chair of the Department of Geological Sciences. “The department is very proud of each student’s accomplishments for receiving this tremendous honor.”
