The US CA-La Brea Tar Pits field school is focused on Paleontology and Paleoecology, where students will be trained in paleontological excavation, fossil preparation, and museum curation, education, and outreach, and will learn how paleontological data are being used today to manage for future environmental change. To support students from outside the Los Angeles area, this scholarship will provide a limited number of $750 housing stipends that will help to defray costs of lodging within reasonable driving/bus/train distance from the La Brea Tar Pits and Museum.
Competitive scholarships, each for up to $750, provided as housing stipends. This award will be paid directly to landlords or other housing operators (Airbnb, hotels, etc.) or against original housing receipts issued to students enrolled in the US CA-La Brea Tar Pits program. This scholarship may not be applied to any other field school, within or outside those offered by the IFR.
