Awards Info

AWARDS:

* The Geochemistry Division will pay for the awardees’ registration to the 254th ACS National Meeting.

* Awardees will be given an extended time allocation for their oral presentation (30 minutes instead of regular 20 minutes for contributed talks)

* Student Travel Awards: The number of awards will be made based on the quality of the applications (extended abstracts). Abstracts will be judged on impact of results on the field of geochemistry, technical approach, quality and clarity of writing, and relevance of the abstract to both session and national meeting themes. The award winners will then be judged during their talks for a Best Paper award. 

When to apply?

Applications can be submitted anytime during the abstract submission period, which ends on April 10, 2017.

Who can apply?

The award is limited to undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Applicants must have already submitted a regular abstract to MAPS for the meeting.

The applicant must be the presenting author.

Only one application per presenting author will be considered.
