OMS Scholarship Committee

    For many years, the Orcutt Mineral Society has given college scholarships to students in the Geology or Earth Sciences field. Many have been given to Allan Hancock College in Santa Maria and to Cuesta College in San Luis Obispo as well as the Santa Barbara City College.

    The current amounts are $300.00 plus 10% of the proceeds from the annual Rainbow of Gems show. Scholarships are given on the basis of need, as determined by the Scholarship Committee. The student must have a grade point average of at least 2.5 and demonstrate an interest in Geology or Earth Science. The scholarship committee works with the local colleges to determine the winning students and provides progress reports as available. Contact Wayne Mills at for more information.
