Keith Krakauer Memorial Scholarship

Scholarship Description

This fund was established by the friends and family of Keith as a memorial to him and his deep love of nature. The fund can also be used to help students who have spent time at the RMBL and want to return, either as a student, a research assistant, or as a first-year graduate student. There are two criteria for awarding the scholarship. First, it should be used to help students who, for whatever reason, might not otherwise be able to attend the RMBL. Second, it should be awarded to students for whom a summer at the RMBL will be particularly meaningful.

Award decisions will be based on financial need and academic merit. You will be able to complete a financial aid form when completing the Coursework Application. Please note: students receiving fellowship and scholarship funds are expected to maintain a B average in their courses. Performance will be reviewed mid-way through the summer and students not in compliance will be asked to leave the field station at their own expense.
