Application for Field Camp Support
The Geology Department has established the Geology Field Fund through generous
donations of Union College Geology Alumni. Part of the purpose of this fund is to help all of
our students get an opportunity to go to field camp. To ensure a fair allocation of limited funds,
your application will be evaluated by the Geology Department on the basis of scholarship and
need. You are encouraged to apply even if you do not presently receive financial aid.
Applicants must apply to at least one field camp, though final arrangements need not have
been made by the deadline below. Applicants must be sure that they meet the criteria for each
camp to which they apply (e.g., have taken petrology and structural geology, if required). The
award will be paid directly to the field camp which you attend.
Please fill out this form and submit to the Geology Department Chair. Use extra pages for
explanations, if necessary.
Application deadline is April 1, or the first weekday thereafter, each year.
Late applications will not be considered.
