  • Anonymous


The Association for Women Geoscientists Foundation has established the Chrysalis Scholarship, a $250 grant for women finishing a Masters or Ph.D. degree in an Earth science. Chrysalis is for candidates who have returned to school after an interruption of a year or longer and has no restrictions on use. “We see a winner getting her thesis typed or paying for child care—anything necessary to allow a degree candidate to finish her thesis and enter a geoscience profession,” said Vicki Cowart, AWG Foundation president. For information, write to Chrysalis Scholarship, AWG Foundation, c/o Resource Center for Associations, 10200 W. 44th Ave., #304, Wheat Ridge, CO 80033. January 31, 1989, is the deadline to apply for the Chrysalis awards that will be made March 1.
