Deadline for Student/Early Career Travel & Research Grants
15 April 2021
Through our travel and research grants and scholarships, we help promote the professional development of the next generation of Earth and space scientists and enable the next era of scientific discoveries. These programs provide the opportunity for scientists to participate in career-building activities early in their careers.
We offer travel grants for students planning to attend AGU meetings and conferences. The program provides financial assistance to U.S. and international early career scientists and students who have little or no support from research contracts or grants, and who are presenting for the first time at a conference. Our research grants and scholarships provide the support necessary for students and early career scientists to complete research and advance their education and careers.
The Bruno Martinelli Travel Fellowship helps Latin American and Caribbean early career scientists and/or graduate students who are actively involved in volcano research. The fellowship provides travel support for the recipient to participate in and present a paper on a volcano-related topic at an international conference or workshop. Your participation and research presentation can be done virtually. To be considered for a travel grant, applicants must meet specific criteria and commit to participate in and present on a volcano-related topic at an eligible meeting.
- Honoring the legacy of June Bacon-Bercey, America’s first female television meteorologist, the June Bacon-Bercey Scholarship in Atmospheric Sciences for Women will support women students with a demonstrated interest in atmospheric sciences and intersections with meteorology as they establish their studies and build careers in the field. The scholarship will recognize that the awardee’s outstanding accomplishments for a scientist at their career-stage and will acknowledge that the awardee shows exceptional promise for continued contributions to the atmospheric sciences.
The Horton Research Grant is a grant awarded to Ph.D. students studying hydrology, water resources, or a closely related field. The grant is awarded to up to three students each year. Awardees are recognized at the AGU Fall Meeting where they where they will receive a one-year grant (not to exceed $10,000 USD) to cover research costs and a student travel grant to put toward Fall Meeting related expenses.
Dr. Edmond M. Dewan Young Scientist Scholarship for Atmospheric Sciences and Space Physics encourages graduate students working on problems in the areas of atmospheric science and space physics. Recipients receive a $1,000 USD academic scholarship. Recipients do not automatically receive a student travel grant for AGU’s Fall Meeting, but are encouraged to apply separately.
Funded by Geophysical Survey Systems, Inc. (GSSI), this GSSI Student Grant supports the Near-Surface Geophysics Section’s student-scientists conducting field geophysical research using ground-penetrating radar and electromagnetic methods. The yearly grant will carry a cash award of up to $2,000. If funding exists, more than one award may be given in a year. In addition to the cash award, GSSI will make loaner equipment available to the winner(s). GSSI will coordinate this equipment loan directly with you and will do their best to coordinate and make any necessary GSSI equipment available.
Paros Scholarships in Geophysical Instrumentation supports graduate students with a demonstrated interest in geophysical instrumentation and precise field measurements in seismology, atmospheric sciences or ocean sciences. This $5,000 USD scholarship is awarded to three students each year to help build a solid pool of talent working on and interested in geophysical instrumentation.
Lawrence A. Taylor Research Fund in Petrology and Geochemistry provides $4,000 USD grants for two PhD students pursuing studies in the fields of Petrology and/or Geochemistry and who demonstrate excellent research in their field. The grant, starting in 2021, will cover the financial burden associated with candidate’s research studies.
