AWG provides Student Awards for Geoscience Excellence (SAGE) certificates through the Society for Science & the Public (SSP), the sponsoring organization of the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), to young women whose projects exemplify an understanding of our world and its processes. The 2013 science fair season has started and the fairs are almost always looking for Special Awards judges! Judging at a science fair is a very rewarding experience and you will enjoy visiting with these talented and motivated young people. If you are interested in judging in a science fair click here for more details. Special requrest are being made in FL, CO, MD, SC, NM, and for the International Fair in AZ.
The Chrysalis Scholarship provides degree-completion funding for women geoscience graduate students whose education has been significantly interrupted by life circumstances. The awards are intended to cover costs associated with completion of her thesis/dissertation, beyond what is traditionally covered by primary research funding. Such costs can include drafting expenses, child-care, defense travel, late-stage research and analyses, or anything necessary to assist a degree candidate during those critical, final days. For application details click here.
The scholarship, offered by the Salt Lake Chapter of AWG, is available to a woman geoscience student attending college or university in Utah, who must attend field camp this summer as part of her graduation requirements. Also see details on the Salt Lake Chapter Research Scholarship.
AWG DRAFT STRATEGIC PLAN!
Susan R. Eaton, a Calgary-based geophysicist, geologist, science journalist and Antarctic Explorer-in-the-Making, will travel to the Bottom of the World from December 29, 2012 to January 21, 2013, participating in the Scotia Arc Tectonics, Climate and Life Expedition. Led by the Jackson School of Geosciences (University of Texas at Austin), this international expedition involves world-renowned instructors — geologists, geophysicists and biologists — who will focus on the interplay of geology, geophysics, glaciology, plate tectonics, climate change and life.
