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. It is really gratifying to know that we can support their PhD projects”
The Geological Remote Sensing Group Annual Student Award provides financial support (up to £500) to any PhD or MSc 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. Supervisor sign off will be required prior to award to reflect support to these obligations.
As usual, applications are accepted from further education establishments anywhere in the world as long as you are enrolled in a geological remote sensing (or related) MSc, PhD program and are a GRSG student member (it is only £10 to join). Awards will be made during the GRSG International Conference and AGM 2022.
The deadline for applications is the 1st of September 2022, 00:00 GMT.
