One of the goals of the Feather River Lapidary and Mineral Society is to promote learning about rocks and geology. A great way to do this is by encouraging young rock hounders to enter the field!

The club raises money for our scholarships at our annual show through the raffle that’s held at the end of the second day.

We also accept donations toward our Scholarship Fund.

At least one scholarship will be available to local college students in 2022. The application is available to students studying geology, earth sciences, or a related subject. Students studying at a college in Northern California are permitted to apply. Students must be a U.S. citizen and submit an unofficial transcript.

Applications (PDF available here) should be postmarked by June 30, 2022 and scholarships will be awarded in mid September at our annual Rock and Gem Show. Please print the PDF, fill in and mail to the address at the top of the application.
