2014 Subaru Minority Student Scholarship Recipients

Subaru of America, Inc., in partnership with the GSA Foundation, has generously funded a scholarship program to benefit diverse undergraduates considering a degree in the geosciences. The Subaru Minority Student Scholarship Program provides US $1,500 to one student in each of GSA’s six North American regional Sections and to one student in a low-income country from GSA’s International Section (nominated by a GSA Campus Representative). The students also receive free registration to attend the GSA Annual Meeting and a one-year complimentary membership in GSA.

The purpose of this scholarship is to encourage minority students to continue studies in the geosciences as a degree choice.

Women in Science Fund

Subaru funds the Subaru Outstanding Woman in Science Award, a prestigious award highlighted at the GSA Annual Meeting each year.

Education and Outreach Programs

Like geocaching — an adventure game for Global Positioning System (GPS) users to cache and find locations with actual hidden items — an EarthCache™ adventure is treasure-hunting for the caches that Earth has stored. EarthCache sites do not use containers; their treasure is the lessons people learn about our planet when they visit the site.

Subaru also sponsors the Women in Geoscience Mentoring Event at the GSA Annual Meeting, which addresses issues faced by women in geology.

Corporate Vehicles

Two vehicles are provided to GSA for company use. These vehicles are emblazoned with images and logos that project the Society mission at the same time offering great visibility for Subaru. This year, we have two Crosstreks that are being used for GSA business and also offered to GSA employees for carpooling.
