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.
