Course credit for internships

Course credit for internships

Students who are interested in obtaining credit for internships should first secure an internship with a provider. Once confirmed, contact Dr. Hudak, for permission to register for GEOG 4920/5900.

You will be required to compile a portfolio during the course of your internship and provide a letter of assessment from the internship provider. Both will be used to determine a "grade" for the course.

Harriet Evelyn Wallace Scholarship - American Geosciences Institute

Harriet Evelyn Wallace Scholarship
The Harriet Evelyn Wallace Scholarship was established from a bequest given to AGI by Harriet Evelyn Wallace, who was one of the founding members of the Geoscience Information Society (GSIS).  This scholarship is for the support of female graduate students in the United States studying the geosciences.  Each year, we receive applications and name one Master's student and one PhD candidate a $5,000 scholarship. All successful Wallace Scholars are allowed to apply for a second $5,000 scholarship, as long as they are still enrolled as a full-time student within a graduate degree program in the geosciences. Their applications will be considered competitively within the entire pool of applicants for that year.

2018-2019 Application

The application process is now OPEN.  Please visit the information page for more information for how to apply.  The scholarship is open to all women pursuing a Master’s or Doctoral degree in the geosciences.  One Master's candidate and one Doctoral candidate will be selected for the 2018-2019 scholarship cycle. We also strongly encourage incoming Master's students to apply.   The application deadline for the 2018-2019 academic year is on January 3rd, 2018. The successful applicant will be a thesis-based, full time student and must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. The Harriet Evelyn Wallace Scholarship is merit-based and applicants will be evaluated on their probability of successfully completing a geoscience graduate program and transitioning into the geoscience profession following graduation.

Applicants may either be entering graduate school or already enrolled in a graduate program in the geosciences. In addition, she must have at least 1 full academic year remaining in the graduate program. The successful applicant will be awarded $5,000 for her first scholarship year. All Wallace Scholars are eligible to receive a second scholarship of $5,000. Restrictions include the following: candidates must submit a full application to re-compete for the scholarship and continue to be enrolled full time in a graduate program for the full academic year of the scholarship term, and there is a lifetime maximum of receiving two Wallace awards. However, candidates do NOT have to apply in consecutive years. 


Applicants must submit unofficial GRE scores, all post-secondary unofficial academic transcripts, unofficial graduate academic transcripts (if applicable), CV, write a 500-word abstract about their research interests, and a 500-word personal statement. If the applicant is intending on pursuing graduate school, she will need to send proof of acceptance in the program before the award is funded. The successful applicant will have an undergraduate GPA of 3.25 or higher and a graduate GPA of 3.0 or higher. In addition, all applicants must be active members of at least one of AGI’s professional member societies. Please visit this page for a full list.
