The number of minority scholarship recipients supported by the American Geological Institute, its member societies, companies, and individuals increased from 23 to 37, an increase of 61%, from the academic year 1974–1975 to 1975–1976. The dollar amount of the scholarships awarded increased from $13,050 to $31,800, an increase of 141%.

Six minority scholars were selected for support for the academic year 1975–1976 at the November 1974 meeting of the Advisory Committee to the AGI Minority Participation Program. Thirty-one additional scholars were picked when the Advisory Committee met at the Geological Society of America Headquarters in Boulder, Colorado, on May 22–23, 1975.
