En representación de la Rocky Mountain Section de la SEPM nos envían información sobre premios y becas en el ámbito de la geología en general de la región de las Montañas Rocosas y específica a investigación en sedimentología fluvial:
Good Morning Everyone,
I’m reaching out to my network to broadcast RMS SEPM scholarship opportunities and to seek out any ideas that any of you might have as to whom I might reach out to find students who are working in these arenas. We give 3 scholarships every year and they are listed below.
If you have students, or know of students working in these areas, please contact me or have them contact me or go to our website at https://www.rmssepm.org/scholarships for information on applying.
1) Fluvial Sedimentology Award in the amount of $2,000.00, is offered to support Masters or Doctoral level student research in modern or ancient fluvial sedimentology.
2) Edwin D. McKee Grant is offered as a tribute to the late Edwin McKee who worked for the U.S. Geological Survey for over 30 years (see AAPG Bulletin, v. 69, p. 491-493). This grant offers a $2,000.00 award to Undergraduate or Master’s degree candidates. The award is to be used for thesis-related research in sedimentology and/or the application of sedimentology to a better understanding of the geology of the Rocky Mountain region.
3) Donald L. Smith Research Grant which is offered as a tribute to the late Professor Donald Smith of Montana State University (see AAPG Bulletin, v. 69, p. 1830-1832). This grant offers a $2,000.00 award to a Ph.D. degree candidate. The award is to be used for research that is directly applicable to better understanding the geology of the Rocky Mountain region.
Thank you in advance for your help in spreading the word.
