Dear all,

We’re pleased to announce that the AGeS2 (Awards for Geochronology Student Research 2) Program has been funded by a new 3-year award from NSF. AGeS2 grows the AGeS1 program into a wider cross-disciplinary initiative beyond the primarily North American-based focus of EarthScope.

AGeS2 offers support of up to $10k for graduate students in the U.S. to develop the scientific rationale for projects involving geochronology, and then provides them with hands-on experience acquiring data in labs, all while being mentored by geochronologists. AGeS awardees visit a geochronology lab for a week or more, participate in sample preparation and analysis, and learn fundamental aspects of the methods, techniques, and theory used in modern analytical facilities. Awards can be used to fund analytical costs, sample preparation, travel to the host geochronology lab, lodging, and other expenses.

AGeS2 plans to make 18-20 awards annually to graduate students in 2019, 2020, and 2021. Unlike AGeS1 projects, AGeS2 project study areas are not restricted to North America.

The next AGeS deadline is February 1, 2019.

We have a new partnership with the Geological Society of America to help manage this broader effort. The new AGeS2 website is coming soon at http://www.geosociety.org/ages<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.geosociety.org_GSA_Education-5FCareers_Grants-5FScholarships_GSA_grants_ages.aspx&d=DwMFaQ&c=l45AxH-kUV29SRQusp9vYR0n1GycN4_2jInuKy6zbqQ&r=WEMrDCFJQuie4PgvGyOBhue3VDoOECo3RNv5m35KbzA&m=aQQVE2jCbLTMk3couMU6kKYAQxyn4DsKsiV9GPlOJcM&s=RFpgqdsdHZ-n9WpKzqOe1UESSbdnoFAfr8953JG-jEQ&e=>
