Information about steps the conference is making to reduce its environmental impact
The GS and EAG are committed to making the Goldschmidt Conference accessible to students and early career scientists. The Goldschmidt grant program provides waived registration fees and travel support for early career delegates from countries designated by the World Bank as “low-income” or “lower-middle-income” economies.
Additionally, grants for US-based students and postdocs are available through support from US funding agencies.
These grants are awarded on a competitive basis for delegates who meet the requirements outlined below.
All applications must be completed by January 31, 2020.
Am I eligible to apply?
If you cannot say YES to one of the two statements above, sadly you are not eligible.
Why are grants limited to applicants from certain countries? The GS and EAG have decided to allocate grant funds in the conference budget to countries with low-income or lower-middle-income economies because early career delegates in these countries are less likely to have access to travel funding than delegates in high-income countries. Increasing participation from countries with low-income or lower-middle-income economies is an expression of the societies’ mission to make geochemistry research accessible to scientists in all parts of the world. Support for US-based students is available because dedicated GS members have sought out funds from US government agencies. These funds are restricted by those agencies to delegates who study in the US. Unfortunately, we have not obtained support from other countries.
