The Outstanding Student Paper Award program and the Student Travel Grant program are wonderful opportunities for members to help students gain valuable feedback or win a student travel grant to attend the Fall Meeting!  Neither of these programs would be as successful as they are without our volunteers and we are grateful for their time and dedication.  AGU is currently seeking volunteers for the below positions.

  • Only AGU members can access the OSPA and Student Travel Grant systems
  • Must not be a student member
  • Do not need to attend the Fall Meeting
