Wayne and Ethel Moore Endowed Scholarship - For Incoming Freshmen
The Wayne and Ethel Moore Scholarship was established in 2006 to honor the memory of Wayne and Effie Moore who were prominent members of the CMU geologic community for many years. Wayne Moore served as chair and professor of geology at CMU from 1970-1987. Wayne and Effie also volunteered their time and wisdom at Big Bend National Park in west Texas. Today, this award is presented to an incoming freshman with strong academic promise planning to major in geology. The Moore Award is renewable for a second year if the student maintains good academic standing and remains committed to a geology major with a minimum GPA of 3.0. Students who enhance diversity are especially encouraged to apply.
