Dudley and Marion Bolyard- University of Colorado Scholarship


One Scholarship for $3,000

In 2020, The Rocky Mountain Association of Geologists Foundation will grant an award, for the amount of $3,000, to a graduate student in the Department of Geological Sciences, University of Colorado, Boulder. The purpose of the award is to support geologic studies and to reward excellence in geologic achievement. Although the Foundation has given the award for years, during recent years it has been underwritten through generous contributions from Dudley and Marion Bolyard, long-time supporters of the Department and the RMAG Foundation.

The following criteria will be used by the RMAG Foundation to select one recipient from the University of Colorado:

  • Relevance of the student’s original research in geology
  • Academic achievements
  • Economic need
  • Faculty references or contacts

An application for the RMAG Foundation Bolyard—University of Colorado Scholarship must be submitted electronically and must include:

  • A thesis proposal (two pages or less) supplemented with figures and maps as needed, financial support and needs listed, and with a timetable for completion of the research
  • A resume with GPA and GRE information
  • A schedule for completing stages in and completion of the research
  • Recommendation letter from the appropriate faculty advisor

A review panel will evaluate the proposals, and Trustees of the Foundation will make the award.

Application deadline is January 10, 2020

The recipient, with one other person selected by the recipient, will be guests of the Foundation at a monthly luncheon meeting of the Rocky Mountain Association of Geologist in April 2020. A short presentation will be made to the recipient during the meeting. The RMAG Foundation is unable to pay for transportation or accommodation costs for awardees to attend the luncheon.

Application is closed. Thank you to all who applied.
