Scholarship

SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION FORMS

The El Dorado County Mineral and Gem Society has set up a Scholarship Program to provide scholarships to graduates of El Dorado County high schools who are pursuing a degree and/or career in earth sciences, lapidary arts and other related fields at an accredited college or university.

While eligibility includes the student having been a graduate of an El Dorado County high school, the student may now be attending a college or graduate school outside of the County.

Scholarships have generally been awarded in increments of $500 - $1000. We look forward to awarding similar amounts in future years.

Applications are annually distributed to Career Centers at El Dorado County High Schools and the Financial Aid Offices at local colleges and universities in the surrounding area.

Scholarship information is also available on the El Dorado County Scholarship website however, the Society's Scholarship forms need to be used.

The El Dorado County Mineral and Gem Society was established in 1949 to encourage interest in the earth sciences and lapidary arts and hopes that this program will aid in continuing these interests in future generations. Funds for the Scholarship Program are obtained from designated proceeds that the club receives from its annual October Rock and Gem Show and other activities. The Society is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
