Four Students Receive Funding Awards in Spring 2023
The Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences Research Grants Program, now in its fourth semester, awards funds to students to carry out and publish research. Each semester, $5,000 is available, with up to $2,500 awarded per student.
Students may apply each semester but may only receive one award per degree in EAS. The selection committee (currently Regina Capuano, Dan Hauptvogel, Xun Jiang, Shuhab Khan, and Julia Wellner [chair]) has noticed that the process is becoming more and more competitive each round and has a hard time selecting winners from many qualified proposals.
