2018 AGU Fall Meeting Student Travel Grants
Update: Thank you to all the donors that make Student Travel Grants possible! And congratulations to the hundreds of 2018 travel grant winners. We look forward to greeting you all at AGU Fall Meeting. General student travel grants were awarded to 231 recipients, and 12 students and early career scientists received Berkner Travel Fellowships. For the Data Visualization and Storytelling Competition 14 winners were selected, and one Lumley Scholarship awardee was selected.
Talk about a unique opportunity! The competition winners received travel grants funded by AGU, complimentary registration to the AGU Fall Meeting, and the opportunity to present their data visualization on the NASA Hyperwall. This competition was open to 2- and 4-year undergraduate students and graduate students who are legal U.S. residents. This AGU competition was funded by a generous grant from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
The Fall Meeting General Student Travel Grant provides partial travel assistance to student presenters to attend Fall Meeting. Any AGU student member presenting at Fall Meeting was eligible to apply, but preference was given to students from demographic groups who are underrepresented in the sciences. Awardees traveling from the United States and Canada received $500 grants, whereas awardees traveling from outside the United States and Canada received $1,000 grants.
Early-career scientists and students under 35 years of age who are citizens and residents of countries designated by the World Bank as “low” or “lower-middle” income per capita were eligible to apply. Registration, travel, boarding, and meals for Fall Meeting were covered. To see a full listing of Berkner eligible countries, please click here.
High school and undergraduates studying energy and environmental science were provided with a student membership, a $500 travel grant to attend AGU Fall Meeting, and a $1,000 college scholarship.
