The Committee on Education and Human Resources (CEHR) continued sponsorship of student travel grants, scholarships, and the Job Center in 1987, as well as taking on several new initiatives. AGU was awarded a National Science Foundation grant to provide partial support for students traveling to the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics assembly. Some 50 students, representing all sections of AGU, received between $100 and $200 for travel assistance. CEHR also allocated AGU funds for ∼20 students to attend the AGU Spring and Fall meetings. The primary criteria for this assistance were demonstrated need and economical travel plans.
