Meteorological Sciences Scholarships

Here are some of the Meteorological Sciences scholarships on our site for which you may qualify.

AMS Minority Scholarships

The AMS/Industry Minority Scholarships will award funding to minority students who have been traditionally underrepresented in the sciences, especially Hispanic, Native American, and Black/African American students. 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.

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.

Harold Taft Scholarship

The Lone Star Emmy Educational Foundation proudly offers a scholarship program for college students pursuing meteorology and atmospheric science. Thanks to a generous donation from NBC DFW/KXAS-TV in Dallas/Fort Worth, the Lone Star Emmy Educational Foundation developed an annual college scholarship fund in the memory of Harold Taft, who served as Chief Meteorologist at KXAS-TV from 1949 until 1991. The Lone Star EMMY Foundation will award scholarships of up to $2,500 each to qualified students chosen by our Scholarship Committee. The Foundation will annually review the amount of the scholarships. To be considered for a scholarship, a student must meet the following eligibility requirements: Student must be in good standing (not on academic probation) with a minimum 2.5 GPA. Undergraduate students must have two (2) academic semesters remaining when the scholarship is awarded or be enrolled in graduate school.

Student must be currently enrolled in an institution of higher learning in the State of Texas at a junior level or above. What is your ultimate career goal? To increase diversity and the number of students from underrepresented groups pursuing studies in meteorology, race and gender may be entered into the decision process. Applicants must be citizens of the United States of America either by birth or naturalization. Minority applicants who are Black (African American), Hispanic, Asian or Pacific Islander, American Indian, Aleutian (Alaskan) native or native Hawaiians must indicate such in a narrative statement how they meet these criteria.

Eligibility: Eligible to participate in this program are enlisted members of the Air Force who have been accepted at a university or college (or approved cross-town institution) that is associated with AFROTC and that offers an approved major. The majors currently supported are computer engineering, electrical engineering, meteorology, nursing, foreign languages, and foreign area studies. Applicants must have completed 1 year of college study with a GPA of at least 3.0 and must be medically qualified. They must be younger than 30 years of age or otherwise able to be commissioned before they become 35 years of age. Additional Information: Upon completing their degree, selectees attend officer training school and are then commissioned to serve in the Air Force in their area of specialization. Further information is available from base education service officers or an Air Force ROTC unit.

Army Research Laboratory Postdoctoral Flwp Program

Before appointment, each participant must present evidence of having received a Ph.D., Sc.D., or other earned research doctoral degree recognized in U.S. academic circles as equivalent to a Ph.D. Fellows are selected based on their overall qualifications and technical proposal addressing specific needs defined by ARL. The selected participants will work in a unique Army laboratory environment, while interacting with senior ARL scientists and engineers. ASEE will hold reviews of applicants to the Fellowship Program on a continual basis. Fellowships are awarded for one year, however, Fellows may participate for a second and third year. Applicants are advised to plan their research programs to confirm to a one year appointment. Most opportunities for research at ARL Directorates are open to citizens of the U.S. and to legal permanent residents. However, in some Directorates, certain opportunities for research are open only to U.S. citizens. Although opportunities are limited to unclassified research, all guest investigators, including Postdoctoral Fellows, are subject to Army regulations governing visiting scientists. ARL cannot sponsor applicants for its Research Associateship programs who are citizens of countries whose policies have been determined to be inimical to U.S. interests. Prospective non-U.S. applicants who are uncertain of their eligibility are advised to contact the Associateship Programs Office at ARL before submitting a formal application.

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. Applicants at any stage of their graduate program may apply, as long as they will be available to accept two summers of paid internship. Those who already possess a doctoral degree are ineligible. Employers may nominate NPSC fellows directly, obviating the selection process. These fellows may enroll for either a Master's or a PhD degree.
