Frank E. Kottlowski / Bureau Fellowship

The New Mexico Bureau of Geology & Mineral Resources is seeking candidates for the Kottlowski/Bureau Fellowship.  The fellowship, in honor of Frank E. Kottlowski, is for an incoming graduate student in the earth sciences at New Mexico Tech (NMT) and offers a 12-month Research Assistantship plus actual tuition costs (guaranteed for 1 year, renewable for up to 3 years).  Additional funding may be available to cover some field and laboratory expenses through the Frank E. Kottlowski Memorial Endowment.

Applicants can have research interests in any earth or environmental science specialty, but will be expected to complete a project that is either within the state or of particular interest to the state in conjunction with advisors from both the Bureau of Geology and the NMT Department of Earth and Environmental Science.  The application deadline is January 15th of each year.  Applicants will also automatically be considered for other forms of support through the NMT EES Department. 

In addition to applying for graduate admission to the NMT EES Department, a letter indicating your interest in this fellowship should be addressed to:

Bureau of Geology & Mineral Resources
New Mexico Tech

Socorro, NM 87801

Alumni or other supporters of NMT or the Bureau of Geology are encouraged to support the Frank E. Kottlowski Memorial Endowment. Donations can be made through the NMT Office of Advancement donation form(use the "Designation" menu dropdown to select the "Kottlowski, Frank E. Memorial Endowment").

Note: This fellowship is separate from the NMGS Frank E. Kottlowski Research Award.
