The Norman R. Tilford Field Studies Scholarship fund was established shortly after Tilford died in late 1997 while flying his small aircraft to meet a Texas A&M University student field trip. He was a leader in engineering geology, a past president of AEG and a professor at Texas A&M University. Tilford was dedicated to teaching geology in the field. This scholarship supports his legacy. For more information about Tilford and the scholarship in his honor, please visit the AEG Foundation website.
