I don't know much about scholarships/fellowships, although I know in general Ph.D students can get funding relatively easier than Master students. For now you probably have to check the programs in these universities/colleges one by one to find out the funding opportunities and I am sure the funding sources can change from year to year. But this may be the next topic I should work on. :D

The Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) offers the following types of scholarships.
SEG is a global society - all students regardless of citizenship or location of university are encouraged to apply.

Freshman - 1st year college students interested in Geoscience majors
Undergraduate - college students majoring in Geoscience
Graduate - Masters, PhD students pursuing Geophysics disciplines

Scholarships are MERIT based - NOT financial need.
On line applications at www.seg.org/scholarships
Deadline is March 1st. - Applying earlier gives you a better chance of getting feedback on your application before it goes to the committee for review.
Decisions are announced early May.

Scholarships range from $500 to $14,000 USD per academic year, not bad.
