Previously offered: 

  • Minority Participation Program Scholarship (MPP)

MPP began in 1972 with the goal to develop the professional corps of underrepresented ethnic-minority geoscientists in the workforce. Award recipients received funding for professional development activities during their geoscience degree program. It has been the longest running minority program in the geosciences, which has graduated over 1,000 MPP Scholars. Unfortunately, the program has ended. We would like to celebrate the great success that MPP has had over the years. For inquiries about MPP, please contact the scholarship coordinator at
