EDWARD AND ANNA RANGE SCHMIDT CHARITABLE TRUST
Financial Assistance for studies in Earth Sciences in Alaska

We provide grants for students studying earth science and for organizations that promote the understanding of earth sciences.  The Trust is also able to provide emergency assistance for immediate or short-term financial needs.
The Schmidt Charitable Trust was established in 1993 to encourage and assist promising students to pursue education in the earth and environmental sciences.  The focus of the Trust is to promote a better understanding of land, resources, and geologic processes and to support students preparing for related occupations.  With education in these areas students can prepare for roles in science-based land planning and management of natural resources; conservation and development of natural resources; stewardship of the environment; and research in earth history.
Alaska Natives and other minorities will be given preference.
