Graduate Student Research Grants

spacer

The deadline for 2016 applications has passed (1 Feb.).

The primary role of the GSA research grants program is to provide partial support of master's and doctoral thesis research in the geological sciences for graduate students enrolled in universities in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Central America. In 2015, $723,570 was awarded to 391 graduate students (50% of the 784 who applied), with an average grant of $1,851.

ExxonMobil Student Research Grants
ExxonMobil will sponsor 10 research grants at US$7,500 per grant. All applicants in the GSA Student Research Grant Program are eligible for these awards, regardless of the topic or location of their research. ExxonMobil will select the top ten proposals based on merit as recommended by the GSA Research Grant Review Committee.

Specialized Awards: The Committee on Research Grants selects recipients of special awards from applicants to the general research grants program. A student may not apply directly for a specialized grant, however may indicate on the application if he/she would like to be considered for an award. These are generally recognition awards only with no additional funding. However, some specialized awardees may be funded for an amount greater than US$2,500.

GSA strongly encourages women, minorities, and persons with disabilities to participate fully in this grant program.

This material is based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant No.1354519.
