Application Deadline: November 11, 2013
The GeoPRISMS Program, successor to MARGINS, is offering two $500 prizes for Outstanding Student Presentations on GeoPRISMS- or MARGINS-related science at the AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco, December 9-13, 2013. The two prizes, one each for a poster and an oral presentation, will be awarded to highlight the important role of student research in accomplishing MARGINS- and GeoPRISMS-related science goals, and to encourage cross-disciplinary input. Any student working on science topics related to the objectives of MARGINS or GeoPRISMS is eligible to participate. Students do not have to be working on a MARGINS- or GeoPRISMS-funded project to enter the competition. Students from the international community, as well as from the U.S., are encouraged to apply.
Presentations will be judged throughout the AGU meeting. Students will also have an opportunity to display their posters (or poster versions of their AGU talks) at the GeoPRISMS Student and Community Forum, beginning at 6:00 pm, Monday, December 9th at the Westin Market Street Hotel (50 Third St., between Mission and Market).
GeoPRISMS Student Prize winners and honorable mentions will be notified after the AGU Fall Meeting and highlighted in the GeoPRISMS newsletter and website, and their host schools will be notified of their achievement.
