Students

Thank you for your interest in attending the Field Conference of Pennsylvania Geologists.

The Field Conference reserves 20 student spaces for a limited time while registration is open. Thanks to generous donations we are able to offer these student registrations a half scholarship that pays for half of the registration fee for the conference. Therefore if the conference registration is $250 the student is responsible for $125 registration fee.

Registration includes:

  • Opening night Reception – Thursday night (hors d’ oeuvres and some beverages, cash bar)
  • Bus tour – Friday and Saturday (coffee, water, soda and donuts breaks in morning and afternoon)
  • Printed Road Log
  • Digital Guidebook
  • Some cool freebies
  • Lunch for Friday and Saturday; and banquet dinner on Friday night

Hotel rooms are sold separately. We can help coordinate finding someone to share a room if you are interested.

Full scholarships – We have three full scholarships that include all of the above; registration with meals and two night stay at the hotel, (you may be asked to share a room)

  • The full scholarships available require a letter of recommendation from your advisor and a short essay on why you are majoring in geology.
  • Please follow the link to scholarships for details on a full scholarship.

Pre-conference trips take place on the Thursday before the conference.

Please see the registration page for details.
Please submit registration and scholarship requirements to Kristen Hand at khand@pa.gov . For questions, feel contact Kristen Hand at any time,  717-702-2046
