AMS Minority Scholarships

The AMS Minority Scholarships help support the college educations of minority students traditionally underrepresented in the sciences, especially Hispanic, Native American and African American students who intend to pursue careers in the atmospheric or related oceanic and hydrologic sciences.


The two-year scholarships, funded by industry and through donations made by members to the AMS 21st Century Campaign, are for $3,000 for a nine-month period in the freshman year and an additional $3,000 for a nine-month period in the sophomore year. Second year funding depends on successful completion of the first academic year. Minority students who will be entering their freshman year of college in the upcoming fall semester are eligible to apply.
