Bruce J. Douglas has been a member of the faculty in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, formerly the Department of Geological Sciences, since arriving in Bloomington in 1986.

This gift is used to support scholarships for students who have been accepted and enrolled in summer geologic field courses at the IU Judson Mead Geologic Field Station. Recipients are not required to be full-time IU students so long as theymeet the enrollment goals and admission standards for the field station. Recipients will be students who best exhibit the potential to perform exceptionally well in a rigorous field geology course as determined by the field station leadership.
