Student Conferences

The CGU-SES offers sponsorship support of up to $250 to regional Canadian graduate student scientific meetings with geophysical content. Requests should be sent by meeting organizers to the Solid Earth Secretary (Claire Currie) and these will be assessed by the criteria of geophysical content and the possibility of generating matching funds for the meeting from other sources.
