International Association of Sedimentologists postgraduate funding

Postgraduate Grant Scheme (PGS)
The International Association of Sedimentologists (IAS) invites applications for its postgraduate grant scheme. This supports PhD students in their fieldwork, data acquisition and analysis, visits to other institutes to use specialised facilities, or participation in field excursions directly related to their PhD research subject.

Applicants must be IAS members who are PhD students. Preference will be given to applications that are not supported by substantial industry funding. Up to 10 grants of about €1,000 each are available.

Deadline: 31 March, 30 September.

Travel Grants
IAS regularly sponsors sedimentology-related meetings by awarding travel grants to participating IAS student members. These travel grants are not intended to cover all expenses (i.e. travel, housing, registration) entirely, but rather to help alleviate the overall costs students may be facing when participating to such meetings.

Subscribing IAS student members, who have an active and approved (oral or poster) presentation at the sponsored meeting can apply for such a travel grant. They should submit their application via the IAS website before the deadline (generally 2 months prior to the conference).

More details of both schemes here.
