“As the GRSG Chairman, Charlotte Bishop explains; “Students are a big part of the GRSG; they are the future of all geological-based industries and for many years we have actively supported them in as many ways as we can. This became more difficult last year. However, despite the onset of the pandemic we were still able to present 3 awards and still consider great value in our student community and the research that is being undertaken.”
“It is because of this that even though this continues to be a challenging time for all, the GRSG has decided to continue to offer student awards and will be awarding up to £1000 for up to 3 students. We know field work still needs to be done (safely) and lab work, data/software costs etc. do not go away, so I feel proud that we have been able to take this step to provide continued valuable support to our student community”
The Geological Remote Sensing Group Annual Student Awards provide financial support (up to £1000) to all students working with geology and remote sensing.
The award has been setup to cover activities related to field research and equipment, research activities or necessities that are not provided by the research institutions or professional development (for example, participation at conferences, workshops or training sessions).
In return, the recipients are required to contribute a newsletter article to our GRSG Newsletter and present at our annual GRSG Conference. Their contribution must reflect their research effort and how the Award was used to fund their activities.
As with all years of the competition, applications are accepted from further education establishments anywhere in the world.
The lucky winners from previous years, are listed below.
