North Idaho Mineral Club donates $2,000 to NIC

The North Idaho Mineral Club recently established a scholarship through the North Idaho College Foundation in support of students enrolled in geology or interested in geology fields at NIC. The club donated $2,000 to be split between two students.

Sean Buck of Sandpoint and Scott Williams of Rathdrum are the first two recipients.

“I was very excited to receive this scholarship and I really appreciate the club’s investment in my education,” Williams said.

The North Idaho Mineral Club was established in 1949 to promote interest and education in the various earth sciences as well as the lapidary and related arts.
