Encouraging students to embrace the spirit of adventure that Lauren loved
Endowed by the Interess family in memory of Lauren Interess ’98, the fellowship provides $2000 to fund a field or travel project related to earth sciences.
Lauren loved geosciences and the outdoors, and found adventure in all sorts of places. She always sought out projects and outdoor research experiences, and the Interess Fellowship exists to allow students in our department to follow her lead and their hearts.
Previous LIF recipients have used the funds to travel to Arizona, Mongolia, Virgin Islands, South America, Ireland, and Dominica.
If you have a dream that you would like to make real during the summer, spring break, or as a Winter Study 99, discuss your ideas with a faculty member. We accept ideas and applications on a rolling basis.
