Outstanding academic performance by undergraduate Earth and Environmental Science students is recognized by the following prizes and awards:

Todd M. Webber Scholarship
The scholarship is issued from an endowment honoring the memory of Todd M. Webber, an alumni of our department (BS,1975; MS, 1976). Todd was an exceptional student of geology. Following the completion of his graduate work, he began a successful career in hydrogeology.

Sadly, Todd was killed by a tragic accident on November 2, 1979 while working on an exploratory drilling rig on Long Island. Thanks to this memorial scholarship, his memory lives on in the work of today's students.
