William W. Whitley Citizen-Scholar Prize

Each June, a graduating Earth Systems student at Stanford is recognized with a cash award, honoring outstanding academic achievement and efforts toward the betterment of peers, the school and others. MAP has endowed The William W. Whitley Citizen Scholar Award in honor of Bill Whitley, who died in 2001. Bill was an active member of the school's Petroleum Investments Committee since 1980 and was chairman in 1987-1988. Mr. Whitley, a Stanford geology alumnus, worked for almost a decade with MAP sourcing deal flow in the Rockies.

The Whitley Award is by nomination only. Students cannot apply.
