Seismic Sensors in Orbit
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. This $5000 scholarship is awarded to three students each year to help build a solid pool of talent working on and interested in geophysical instrumentation.
Applications open: 3 February 2020
Application deadline: 1 May 2020
To demonstrate eligibility, you must fulfill the following criteria and requirements for your application:
Proposals are judged using criteria adapted from the National Science Foundation:
Three $5,000 scholarships will be awarded annually. The scholarship can be used to relieve the financial burden associated with graduate studies but does not have to be directly applied to the winners’ research projects or studies.
In addition to the cash award, the winner will be presented with an award certificate at an AGU section reception during Fall Meeting and recognized in Eos magazine.
Recipients will be required to submit a one-page report on the impact of their scholarship at the close of their scholarship year to be shared with the Paros Scholarships Review Committee and the Presidents of the Seismology, Ocean Sciences, and Atmospheric Sciences sections.
