Funding Student Research as Global as our Science
GSA Research Grants — an International Program
GSA is pleased to announce the expansion of our North American-based Graduate Student Research Grants Program to include international student members. We are asking for your help with funding the international component of this Program.
The current Program is one of the largest and most prestigious funding programs for geoscience graduate students in North America. The Program helps fund field and laboratory costs of geoscience projects conducted by master’s and doctoral students at universities in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Central America. Since its inception in 1933, GSA has awarded over $11.6 million to almost 10,000 students. This Program is an essential element in supporting the education and training of future geoscientists, while instilling in our student members a sense of loyalty to the Society.
The new International Graduate Student Research Grants Program will provide funding opportunities for those outside of North and Central America, as the current program has geographical restrictions. The GSA Committee on Research Grants will be working in tandem with the International Section to design a feasible and practical program to address our international students’ funding needs.
Before we can start helping our international student members with their research funding, we need to build the fund for this Program. You can contribute in two ways:
1) Send your check payable to the GSA Foundation to: PO Box 9140, Boulder, CO 80301. State on the memo line that your donation is for “GSA Research Grants—International Program.”
2) Click here and “Make a Donation”. Enter the amount of your donation and select “GSA Research Grants—International Program” from the pull-down menu.
We thank you in advance for your interest in and support of international student research.
