The four students with the highest scores will receive the Farvolden Scholarships.
Field of Study:
Students who submit abstracts should be enrolled in a program that is groundwater industry-related, such as hydrogeology, water resource management, water well construction and supply, geology, etc.
Four $1000 scholarships are awarded.
