UTRGV SHIP-GEO Program promotes geosciences. Stimulating Hispanic Participation in the Geosciences (SHIP-GEO) is a National Science Foundation program that raises awareness of the career opportunities in geoscience for students. Not only does the program offer free hands-on knowledge about the environment, but also scholarships to sophomores and juniors who are serious about pursuing a degree in geoscience. The grant offers 50 scholarships in three years time, awarding $2,500 to each student. The deadline to apply for the scholarship is December 2017. The scholarship application and information can be found on the SHIP-GEO page.
