Geological Society of America - Stephen E. Laubach Structural Diagenesis Research Award: Promotes research combining structural geology and diagenesis, and curriculum development in structural diagenesis. Awards are $2,500.
National Geographic: Supports scientific field research and exploration. All proposed projects must have both a geographical dimension and relevance to other scientific fields and be of broad scientific interest. Disciplines include anthropology, archaeology, astronomy, biology, botany, geography, and geology. Awards range from $15,000 to $20,000.
National Science Foundation - Geosciences: Supports research in the atmospheric, earth, and ocean sciences. Basic research in the geosciences advances scientific knowledge of Earth's environment, including resources such as water, energy, minerals, and biological diversity. GEO-supported research also advances our ability to predict natural phenomena of economic and human significance, such as climate changes, weather, earthquakes, fish-stock fluctuations, and disruptive events in the solar-terrestrial environment.
U.S. Geological Survey - The Educational Component of the National Cooperative Geologic Mapping Program (EDMAP): Provides funds for graduate and selected undergraduate students (juniors and seniors) in academic research projects that involve geologic mapping as a major component.
