The GDL Foundation, in the discretion of its Trustees, may provide scholarship grants to assist research and study of geosciences at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Most awards are made to degree-granting institutions on behalf of individual applicants. The GDL Foundation should be acknowledged in any publication resulting from research conducted with the assistance of a grant from the Foundation. The Trustees of the Foundation will determine grants based on review of the applications received each year.
