Geological Summer Field Camp Scholarships


Montana Tech graduates in Geological Engineering work all over the world searching for mineral resources and evaluating rocks, soils, and environmental impacts for construction, resource development, and industrial projects. The program stresses an in-depth summer field camp that focuses on solutions to real world problems. The department is home to a state-of-the-art triaxial testing lab, an underground mine facility, a computer lab equipped with geotechnical engineering and groundwater modeling software, and offers a 4-week summer field camp which is divided into 3 two week modules where students take 2 weeks of field geology and 2 weeks of either field hydrology or geotechnical engineering.

 

 

We feel this 4-week summer field camp is integral to our students' education and are raising funds to help defray the cost for our junior and senior students. Scholarship dollars are imperative to support our students and grow our program. By making a gift to our Geological Summer Field Camp Scholarships, we can help students reach their educational goals. Please consider giving today and investing in our students at Montana Tech.

During DayOne 2021, thanks to a generous gift from Jack and Leah McCarthy, all gifts to Geological Summer Field Camp Scholarships will be matched 1:1 up to $1,000. 

Thank you for your support and please help us spread the word! Share this project on social media, by email and tell your friends!
