George E. Olson Memorial Scholarship Endowment Fund #00321
To provide an annual scholarship award to a Midland or Gladwin County resident. Successful applicants would be college juniors, seniors, or grad students at the time of the award, and would be majoring in an earth science related field. Majors such as meteorology, geology, hedrology, ecology, forestry, etc. would be considered. The main criteria for selection will be academic achievement, with financial need considered to a lesser degree.
From the fundholder:
The creation of the George Olson Fund grew from the Olson family’s desire to promote George’s conviction that education in the Earth Sciences is necessary to insure a positive future for our country and the world.
