Field Course Scholarships

In order to apply for scholarships for field courses, complete the Field Course Award Application . Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until the start of the course, though it is better to apply as early as possible. For a list of courses available at our Fish Lake Field Station during summer 2017, please see our summer field course page

Don Brown and Meta Hellwig Special Study Scholarships

Scholarships of a variable amount ($250 to $1,500) intended to help defray expenses related to travel and costs to take a field biology course away from the EMU Campus. Examples include offerings at Fish Lake or the Parsons Center, the coastal Florida field experience, or the summer study abroad course in Galapagos. International research activities that are organized in consultation with an EMU biology faculty member are also eligible.
  • Eligibility: Biology,, Environmental Science & Society, and Secondary Education Biology Majors are given preference. Other majors will be considered as funds permit. 
  • Selection Criteria: The main criterion will be the apparent value of the learning experience to the student.  Activities offered through EMU are given preference. 

The Biology Department is part of the College of Arts & Sciences, 214 Pray-Harrold
