Eligibility Requirements

The field camp is designed for graduate college students in geology and planetary science programs, although advanced undergraduate students will be considered if they have successfully completed a summer field geology program and have a demonstrated interest in planetary volcanic terrains (like those on the Moon). The program is open to U.S. and foreign national students. Important: The field site in the San Francisco Volcanic Field is a challenging rocky terrain with elevations over a mile high. Students are expected to participate in field camp activities such as hiking, climbing and camping which often times will be strenuous due to the rugged conditions.
