2015 Academic Fellowships

Since 1982 The Colorado Mountain Club Foundation has awarded fellowships for research that parallel the Statement of Purpose adopted by the founders of The Colorado Mountain Club in 1912. The Foundation accepts applications from students enrolled in Colorado colleges and universities and awards grants ranging from approximately $600 to $2,000 in disciplines such as biology, chemistry, ecology, forestry, geography, geology, history and law. Although fellowships are normally awarded to graduate students, undergraduates are also eligible.

Three outstanding applicants are awarded the Neal B. Kindig, Kurt Gerstle, and Al Ossinger Fellowships. The late Dr. Kindig, a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy and Stanford University, was a professor of electrical engineering at C.U. Boulder. He was an active member of CMC and CMCF. Dr. Gerstle was a professor of engineering at C.U. Boulder, a long-time member of CMC and the founder of the CMCF Academic Fellowship program. Dr. Ossinger, a graduate of Stanford University, is retired from the Environmental Protection Agency. He is a long-time member of CMC and CMCF and chaired the fellowship committee for many years.
