AGCC deadline for travel grant application looms


The Australian Geoscience Council has announced that it has extended the closing date for applications for the 34th International Geological Congress Travel Grant Scheme to November 15.

This year AGCC is offering additional funds for opportunities for early career geoscientists to participate in the AGCC 2018 – the inaugural Australian Geoscience Council Convention, to be held in Adelaide in October.

As part of the initiative, specific funding has been made available to provide Australian and New Zealand geoscientists in the early stages of their careers with opportunities to travel internationally to further their careers as geoscientists by, for example, undertaking field work in appropriate areas, visiting and working with appropriate international experts, inspecting appropriate mines or other geoscientific features such as type localities, participating in professionally-organised geoscientific conferences or conventions, etc.

For this year’s round of applications, additional funds have been made to early-career geoscientists that propose to make a significant contribution to the Australian Geoscience Council Convention to be held in Adelaide in October 2018.

Significant contributions that will be considered include, but are not limited to: contributing to the organisation of the convention by joining a Sub-committee, convening a session or workshop, leading a fieldtrip.
