IAGC - International Association of GeoChemistry
PhD Student Research Grants (sponsored by Elsevier)

ElsevierSummary of Grant

The objective of the PhD Student Research Grant program is to assist PhD students registered in a recognized program at a PhD-degree granting institution in any country who is undertaking research in an area of geochemistry to acquire geochemical analyses in support of the student’s research. Our Student Research Grant program is generously supported by Elsevier, the publisher of our Society Journal, Applied Geochemistry.

A PhD Student Research Grant consists of a grant of up to $2200 (US) to support the analytical needs of geochemistry PhD students. The award also includes an article profiling the recipient in Elements magazine and the IAGC Newsletter. Each recipient of a PhD Student Research Grant also receives a complementary 1-year membership to IAGC for the year following receipt of the award. Proposals will be evaluated and winners will be determined by a committee of IAGC Officers and Council. In 2019, we plan to fully support five proposals.

Authorized uses of Research Student Grant funds include:

  1. the cost of preparing PhD dissertation research samples for geochemical analysis
  2. travel to an analytical facility to undertake geochemical sample analysis
  3. the cost of geochemical analyses of PhD dissertation research samples
