Supporting Student Researchers
The Paros Scholarships in Geophysical Instrumentation were established through the generosity of Jerome M. Paros to support graduate students with a demonstrated interest in geophysical instrumentation and precise field measurements in seismology, atmospheric sciences, or ocean sciences. Three students are selected each year to help build a solid pool of talent working on and interested in geophysical instrumentation.
- A $5,000 scholarship
- An award certificate
Criteria for a Successful Application
The review committee will rate the quality of the project narrative, including the creativity/originality, organization and clarity of statement of purpose, delineation of research methods, and explanation of expected impact.
