AGeS-DiG Program

Hi All,

Just wanted to draw your attention to this program both as something for CIG to consider for future projects as well as to share with your geochronology colleagues.


Dear colleagues,

In 2022, AGeS will launch the new AGeS-DiG (Diversity in Geochronology) pilot program. More info below, attached, and on the [AGeS website - AGeS - Awards for Geochronology Student Research]. U.S. scientists at the senior, postdoc, and graduate levels are all eligible to apply for an AGeS-DiG award. We would appreciate it if you would help advertise this opportunity as widely as possible.

Note that 2022 is a gap year in support for the regular AGeS-graduate award program, so there will be no AGeS graduate award cycle in 2022. Remaining funds are instead being used to launch the AGeS-DiG pilot.

Deadline: Feb 1, 2022, 11:59 pm MST. (Partner Letter deadline is 8 February 2021, 11:59 p.m. MST)

Typical amount of award: $12,000-$15,000

Estimated number of awards: 2-3 awards are expected in 2022

Please reach out if you have any questions,
