Each year, the AAPS offers two $1,000.00 scholarships to graduate level students in paleontology attending universities worldwide. The two scholarships are given in the names of the James R. Welch Scholarship (for studies in macro invertebrate fossils), and the Charles Sternberg Scholarship (for studies in macro vertebrate fossils). These scholarships are awarded by a majority vote of the membership attending our annual meeting in Tucson every February.

James R. Welch Scholarship - The James R. Welch Scholarship was created in 1990 in honor of James Welch, of Montana Geological Materials, from Billings, Montana, who died of a heart attack while collecting fossils at Glass Mountain, in the Permian of Texas. This scholarship is meant to assist graduate level students doing research in macro invertebrate fossils.

Charles Sternberg Scholarship - The Charles Sternberg Scholarship was created in 1992 in honor of Charles Sternberg, the patriarch of the Sternberg family of commercial fossil collectors during the late 1800s and early 1900s, who collected many fossil specimens seen in museums around the world. This scholarship is meant to assist graduate level students doing research in macro vertebrate fossils.
