To students and their advisors,
This is a reminder that The Mineralogical Society of America invites undergraduate and graduate student applications for a Grant for Student Research in Mineralogy and Petrology. The deadline for proposal submission is June 1, 2016
At least two awards of up to $5,000 each are given each year. Students, including graduate and undergraduate students, are encouraged to apply. However, all proposals are considered together. The award selection will be based on the qualifications of the applicant, the quality, innovativeness, and scientific significance of the research, and the likelihood of success of the project. Applicants may not apply for both this and the MSA Grant for Research in Crystallography in the same year.
The grant is for research-related expenses only. Travel to meetings, conferences, short courses, non-research fieldtrips, tuition, non-research living (room and board) expenses, overhead or indirect costs, etc. are not suitable uses of the money. Neither should the money be used for salary or wages for the researcher. Proposals that make such requests will not be considered further. The successful applicant will also be asked in the year following grant to write a short summary of how the money was spent.
Awards will be made in January, 2017. Additional information about the grants is at http://www.minsocam.org/msa/Awards/Min_Pet_Award.html
Proposal submissions are to be made online. Instructions for application and submission of proposals are at http://grants.minsocam.org<http://grants.minsocam.org/>.
