The IAGC is happy to announce the recipients of the 2018 Student Research Grants. This has become a very competitive award, with a funding rate of only 5% for 2018. The success of these grantees demonstrates the extremely high caliber of their research. This year's winners are: Deon Knights (The Ohio State University), Christina Richardson (University of California at Santa Cruz), Erin Scott (Durham University), Joyce Yager (University of Southern California), Masoomeh Kousehlar (Miami University), and Kaj Sullivan (Queen’s University).

The International Association of GeoChemistry (IAGC), formerly known as the International Association of Geochemistry and Cosmochemistry, is affiliated with the International Union of Geological Sciences and has been one of the pre-eminent international geochemical organizations for over forty years. The principal objective of the IAGC is to foster cooperation in, and advancement of, geochemistry in the broadest sense. This objective is achieved using the following approaches:

  • The IAGC Works with interested groups in planning symposia and other types of meetings related to geochemistry.
  • The IAGC sponsors publications in geochemistry of a type not normally covered by existing organizations.
  • The IAGC sponsors working groups studying problems that require or benefit from international cooperation.

The primary scientific activities of the IAGC take place through its working groups (many of which conduct regular symposia) and the official journal of the association, Applied Geochemistry.

The IAGC is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and donations to the Society are tax-deductible in the U.S. (EIN: 48-0943367)
