Funding for the scholarships is provided by industry and through donations made by members to the AMS 21st Century Campaign. AMS encourages applications from women, minorities, and disabled students who are traditionally underrepresented in the atmospheric and related oceanic sciences. Candidates must be U.S. citizens or hold permanent resident status and must be pursuing a degree at a U.S. institution. Please check the website for more information.

John Jeffries Meteorology Scholarship

For students performing research on meteorology or meteorological risk modeling as it relates to natural disasters. The John Jeffries Meteorology Scholarship is available to master and doctorate degree students performing research on meteorology or meteorological risk modeling as it relates to natural disasters, subject to the requirements listed below. Award of the scholarship is at the sole discretion of the Scholarship Committee and their decision is final. REQUIREMENTS: 1. Before the start of the proposed period of study (but not necessarily at the time of application), the applicant must possess a bachelor’s degree from a higher education institution which is accredited by the responsible regional or national agency. 2. At the time of acceptance of the scholarship (but not necessarily at the time of application), the applicant must be accepted for graduate study at a college or university in an engineering, construction, architecture, or materials science program in the area of meteorology or meteorological risk modeling as it relates to natural disasters. 3. The proposed faculty member who will direct the applicant’s graduate study during the year in which the scholarship is applied for and awarded must complete and return an appraisal of the student’s capabilities as part of the application process. This faculty advisor must take responsibility for guiding the student’s research program and must ensure the student meets the requirements of the scholarship by preparing and presenting a poster at the FLASH Annual Conference during the year the scholarship is awarded. 4. The applicant is responsible for ensuring that the entire application package has been received by FLASH prior to the application deadline. The application package must include: a. A fully-completed application form. The applicant must respond to all questions on the application form. Do not attach additional sheets. Responses must be typewritten. b. Unofficial transcripts of undergraduate and graduate records. c. A statement of appraisal and agreement to direct the applicant’s graduate research program from the proposed faculty advisor.

AMS Graduate Fellowship in the History of Science

The American Meteorological Society is pleased to invite applications for a graduate fellowship in the history of science, to be awarded to a student wishing to complete a dissertation on the history of the atmospheric, or related oceanic or hydrologic sciences. The award carries a $15000 stipend and will support one year of dissertation research. Fellowships cannot be deferred and must be used for the year awarded, but can be used to support research at a location away from the student's institution provided the plan is approved by the student's thesis advisor. The goal of the graduate fellowship is to generate a dissertation topic in the history of the atmospheric, or related oceanic or hydrologic sciences, and to foster close working relations between historians and scientists. An effort will be made to place the student into a mentoring relationship with an AMS member at an appropriate institution.

David L. Odom and James Fidler

For meteorology and climatology students. Students will be selected by members of the meteorology and climatology option.

Graduate Fellowships in Science and Engineering

Fields of Study: Though the fields supported can vary annually depending on employer needs, in general NPSC covers the following: Astronomy, Chemistry, Computer Science, Geology, Materials Science, Mathematical Sciences, Physics, and their subdisciplines, and related engineering fields: Chemical, Computer, Electrical, Environmental, Mechanical. Location or Type of Institution: Any participating NPSC Member University or College Eligibility: NPSC welcomes applications from any qualified U.S. citizen who has the ability to pursue graduate work at an NPSC member institution.
