For these awards, early career is defined as either currently a student or less than ten years since earning their last degree. Time spent not working actively in a scientific field (for example, time away from scientific work due to family responsibilities) does not count toward the ten-year limit. Please explain any career breaks in your CV and/or statement. Applicants must also have Biogeosciences listed as their primary section affiliation to be eligible. Additionally, participants must be a first author presenting in a poster or oral session. Both in person and online attendees are eligible to apply for this award.
To apply, fill out an application form by following the link below.
Applications will be evaluated by the AGU-Biogeosciences early career committee and will be ranked based on the applicant’s need for support as it is impacted by their role as a caregiver and the potential for the support to enhance their scientific career. Statements which address the applicant’s caregiver duties as they relate to conference attendance will be ranked favorably. We anticipate providing up to six awards.
