Father James B. Macelwane Annual Award in Meteorology

The Father James B. Macelwane Annual Award was established by the American Meteorological Society to honor the late Rev. James B. Macelwane, S.J., a world renowned authority of seismology, who was a geophysicist and Dean of the Institute of Technology, Saint Louis University, until his death in 1956. The recipient of the Father James B. Macelwane award will receive a stipend of $1000 supported by member donations to the AMS Giving Program. The purpose of this award is to stimulate interest in meteorology among college students through the submission of original student papers concerned with some phase of the atmospheric sciences. The student must be enrolled as an undergraduate at the time the paper is written, and no more than two students from any one institution may enter papers in any one contest. Submission of Papers: To consider papers for the Macelwane Award, the AMS Committee of Judges must receive the following: an original copy of the paper in addition to 3 copies (total of 4); a letter of application from the author, including mailing address and email, stating the title of the paper and the name of the university at which the paper was written; a letter from the department head or other faculty member of the major department, confirming that the author was an undergraduate student at the time the paper was written, and indicating the elements of the paper that represent original contributions by the student; an abstract of no more than 250 words of the authors paper Award includes: $1000 stipend Partial travel support to the AMS Annual Meeting.

AMS Graduate Fellowships

The AMS Fellowship Program is a source of scholarships, useful resources, and unique opportunities for outstanding students looking to pursue graduate education in the atmospheric or related sciences. To date, 286 students have been designated as AMS fellowship recipients. The program helps these first-year graduate students to be educated about unique challenges facing the world so that they may better tackle these real-world issues after graduation. With fellowships come several benefits, including financial support to maintain a full course load over their first year of graduate study, the opportunity to be special guests at the AMS Annual Meeting and exclusive events therein, a unique tour of several agencies in the Washington DC area, and ongoing academic and career advocation and support from AMS. Eligibility Requirements To be eligible to apply for a fellowship, a student must… be entering his or her first year of graduate study in the fall of the current year; be pursuing a related full-time course of study in the atmospheric, oceanic, or hydrologic sciences over a full academic year; have a minimum grade point average of 3.25 on a 4.0 scale; be a U.S. citizen or hold permanent resident status (there are no age restrictions); Stipend A $25,000 stipend will be presented to each fellowship recipient for a nine-month period in the academic year. In addition, fellowship recipients will receive partial travel support to attend the AMS Annual Meeting. Application Process AMS GRE code #3819 Prospective candidates from the fields of atmospheric sciences, chemistry, computer sciences, engineering, environmental sciences, hydrology, mathematics, oceanography, and physics are encouraged to apply. A candidate must download the application, complete all six sections, and send it to the address below.

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.

AMS Freshman Undergraduate Scholarship

The American Meteorological Society is pleased to announce the AMS Freshman Undergraduate Scholarship program, open to all high school students and designed to encourage study in the atmospheric and related sciences. Serving as a unique example of various sectors of our field joining together to support young, talented minds, the scholarships are being sponsored by partners in industry, as well as through named scholarships either established by an AMS member or in memory of someone. The sponsors of these scholarships have all recognized the importance in encouraging young people to enter into the atmospheric and related sciences and thus have made generous contributions in support of the AMS Freshman Undergraduate Scholarship Program.

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.
