SEPM Offers Student Travel Awards to ISGC

SEPM - the Society for Sedimentary Geology - is offering funding for sedimentary geoscience or related area students to travel to Flagstaff, Arizona, to attend the first International Sedimentary Geoscience Congress (ISGC) on April 26-29, 2020.

Eligible graduate or undergraduate students must be enrolled in a college or university and actively conducting study or research in disciplines related to sedimentary geology. Students that are SEPM members and already scheduled to present research are also eligible. Awardees must be a U.S. citizen or U.S. permanent resident.

Awardees will receive up to $2,000 for travel expenses, including ISGC registration and fees for courses, workshops, or field trips. After the meeting, awardees will submit reports describing their experiences and any benefits gained from the meeting. This will be posted on the SEPM website. In addition, awardees will contribute to a group article about the meeting, which will be published in The Sedimentary Record.

Applications must be submitted in PDF format, to hharper@sepm.org by February 15, 2020. Learn more about SEPM's Student Participation Grants Program.
