IAGC - International Association of GeoChemistry
Ingerson International Lecturer

Summary of Award

Support for the Ingerson International Lecturer is based on a bequest by Dr. Earl Ingerson, first President of
the Association. An IAGC Ingerson International Lecturer is selected every 2 years. The lecture is scheduled either at an International Geological Congress, at a suitable scientific meeting organized by an IAGC Working Group, or at some other prestigious international/national meeting of another scientific society during the second year after an International Geological Congress. Additional Lectures may be held in intervening years for special reasons (e.g. an important international conference). This award consists of a certificate and a complementary 1-year membership to IAGC for the year following receipt of the award, if not already an IAGC member. IAGC will pay for the travel of the award recipient to the meeting where the lecture is delivered, if the IAGC Treasurer determines that the Association has the financial resources to make this possible. The Lecturer shall be available during the 2 years following the presentation of the Ingerson International Lecture for seminars at academic and research institutions on the basis of expenses-paid invitation and it is expected that the Lecturer will prepare and publish an article in the Association Journal, Applied Geochemistry, during his/her term as Lecturer.

Nomination Procedure

Nomination for the Ingerson International Lecturer is made by the Vice President based on nominations
received from members of the IAGC Board.
