Brian Cooper Scholarship

This scholarship was established in honor of Dr. Brian Cooper by his colleagues for his years of service to the Geology Program within the Department of Environmental and Geosciences at Sam Houston State University. The purpose of this scholarship is to provide financial assistance to students majoring in Geology to pursue their passion for geology. This can be an expensive pursuit and worthy students deserve our support.

A scholarship committee within the Geology Program will select the recipient of the award each year. The following criteria will be used in the selection process: A recipient must (1) be a junior or senior student in good standing and enrolled at Sam Houston State University; (2) major in the regular Geology B.S. degree (not the Geoscience track); (3) maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00 overall and a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00 in geology; (4) earned a minimum of a B in both Mineralogy and Petrology within the Geology Program at Sam Houston State University.
