The Association for Women Geoscientists announces that funding is available for the second year of the Phillips-AWG Distinguished Lectures. Phillips Petroleum has given the AWG Foundation a $9000 grant over 3 years to underwrite travel for women geoscientists participating as speakers.

Grants of up to $300 for direct travel costs will be available on a first come, first serve basis to nonprofit, nongovernment institutions or organizations seeking speakers from the AWG Speakers Bureau. The Bureau provides a list of 120 nationally recognized women geoscientists who cover a wide range of topics.
