Baldwin Coney Scholarship

This scholarship is available to Middlebury students to help defray the cost of attending field camp. It was established in 1987 to honor Peter Coney and Brew Baldwin, both of whom taught in the geology department. Peter Coney taught at Middlebury from 1966 until 1975. Brew Baldwin taught here from 1958 until his death in 1992. Both emphasized the importance of student immersion in field work on real geological problems. In many respects, they formed the foundation for and shaped the current geology curriculum.

Middlebury geology majors can apply for funds from this scholarship by submitting a letter of intent to the department chair. Alumni who wish to contribute to the fund can do so directly to the college.
