Geochemist's Travel Grant Program


  • Anonymous


The U.S. National Committee for Geochemistry is seeking funding for its Travel Grant Program to the 26th International Geological Congress (IGC) in Paris, July 7–17, 1980. The Committee seeks to ensure appropriate U.S. participation by providing for approximately 30 travel grants, ranging from approximately $400 to $700, to enable geochemists residing in the United States to attend the IGC and the General Assembly of the International Association of Geochemistry and Cosmochemistry (IAGC), which is to be held in conjunction with the Congress.

Depending on available funds, travel grants are to be awarded partly on the basis of the Screening Committee's ranking of geochemistry papers submitted for presentation at the 26th IGC. Younger geochemists are encouraged to apply; the Awards Committee plans special consideration for those judged to benefit most by attendance at the IGC and IAGC General Assembly.
