The AMS 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 donations made by members to the AMS Giving Program.


*Applicants must be U.S. citizens or hold permanent resident status.

*Minority students who will be entering their freshman year of college in the fall are eligible to apply.

*Students must plan to pursue careers in the atmospheric or related oceanic and hydrologic sciences. Marine Biology majors are not eligible.

*Students eligible to apply for the AMS Minority Scholarship Program may also apply to the AMS Freshman Scholarship Program but can only accept one scholarship if selected for both.


The $6,000 two year scholarship is for $3000 per year during freshman and sophomore years (second year funding depends on successful completion of the first academic year).
