USPA-PYRN Early Career Travel Grant Announcement

Daniel Vecellio

USPA Early Career Travel Grant Announcement - 2017


The U.S. Permafrost Association will provide travel grants for U.S.-based students and post-graduate researchers (within six years of their terminal degree) to attend conferences, field schools, or pursue field studies directly relevant to permafrost science and engineering in 2017. Successful applicants will receive a minimum of $500, up to a maximum of $1,500. The value of awards will be based on the merit of applications. For conferences, the applicant must be first author on a permafrost-related research presentation. Early Career Travel Grants will not be awarded for the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting; AGU travel grant opportunities will be announced later in 2017.

Preference will be given to applicants who are current members of both USPA and the Permafrost Young Researchers Network (PYRN). Undergraduate students are encouraged to apply. Apply at
