The Eastern Federation of Mineralogical and Lapidary Societies, Inc

A total of eight thousand dollars each year is awarded to one or more Academic Institutions to provide a scholarship to a minimum of 2 students. In furtherance of the ideals and charters of the EFMLS and their many organizations, the Federation conducts fund raising projects for monies for the AFMS Scholarship Fund. Recipients of grants are graduate students working toward Master and Doctorate Degrees in some phase of the earth sciences. As many students are helped as the interest of the fund will permit, with the principle continuing as an endowment. Each participating regional federation names an honorary scholarship recipient who in turn helps select the students for the awards. Currently, the Scholarship is for a two-year period each.
