Money for Geology Teachers

By February 11, 2014

Follow me on:

I've spent the last few days looking at some of the hundreds of local and regional societies out there related to geoscience. A goodly number of them sponsor scholarships for geology undergraduates, and many also support graduate students. But I was looking for groups that support the people who inspired those students—the teachers in K-12 classes and the informal educators at museums and parks. Those teachers, formal and informal, are the front line, geology's interface with the public.

I compiled a list of about a dozen societies that offer cash grants and monetary awards for this special group. I know that's not all, so if you know of others, post them in a comment here or email me with a link. Thanks in advance!
