GEOPATHS Scholars Program

Pathways into the Earth, Ocean, Polar, and Atmospheric & Geospace Sciences

The Southern Illinois University Edwardsville STEM Center, in collaboration with the SIUE Departments of Geography and Environmental Sciences, invites applications to the GEOPATHS Project. Funded by the National Science Foundation (Award No. 1911512), SIUE students selected as GEOPATHS scholars will 1) conduct geoscience research that contributes to solving the region’s environmental problems, 2) complete a geoscience community internship, 3) take two summer field excursions, 4) receive training in geoscience technical skills, and 5) participate in local field trips and seminars that highlight the diversity of geoscience careers. GEOPATHS scholars will work with SIUE professors to learn geotechnical skills, build professional networks, and participate in projects that use geosciences to support community health, safety, resiliency, and sustainability. The deadline to apply is February 28, 2020. For more information about the GEOPATHS scholars program, including how to apply, please follow this link.
