Support the Pirtle Fellowship Gift Fund

Thank you for your interest and support of the Pirtle Fellowship Gift Fund, and for your commitment to graduate education in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences.

This fund was established in 1954 by UK Geology alumnus George W. Pirtle, a consulting petroleum geologist and independent oil producer, to further his belief then that the "field of knowledge in geology is so broad now that a student can scarcely cover the subject in 4 years of study. It is very important to have advanced training, and (anyone) who expects to reach the top in any branch of geology should plan to take graduate work."

The Pirtle Fellowship is a renewable fellowship that supports the department's efforts to recruit the most highly qualified graduate students by paying a summer salary to select graduate students of earth and environmental sciences.

You can support the Pirtle Fellowship Gift Fund on this page. If you'd like to give to another fund that is not listed, please use the search box in the upper right of this page and type in the desired fund to make your gift. We are grateful for your support!
