Are you a student looking to fund your innovative research in Cryospheric Science? Consider participating in the Flash Freeze competition at this year’s Fall Meeting!
The AGU Cryosphere Section Executive Committee is now accepting applications for the Cryosphere Innovation Award for Students that will be decided in the Flash Freeze competition during the Fall Meeting (Tuesday, 13 December 2022: 18:30 - 19:30). The award is open to all students attending the 2022 Fall Meeting and is given to support and recognize innovative student-led research in the Cryospheric Sciences.
Students wishing to participate in this year's competition are required to submit a letter of intent (not to exceed one (1) page) and a CV (not to exceed two (2) pages) to the Innovation Award subcommittee chaired by Ryan Webb via email at Ryan.Webb@uwyo.edu by October 31, 2022 at midnight US eastern time.
Approximately twenty (20) applicants will be selected for participation in the Flash Freeze competition and will be notified on November 7, 2022. During the competition, the student will give a two-minute pitch of their innovative idea to a panel of five (5) judges. Slides or props may be used but the pitch cannot exceed the two-minute allowance. The Flash Freeze will occur during the Fall Meeting. This year it is expected that up to 2 awards of $1000 each will be awarded to the student winners from the Flash Freeze event to pursue their innovative research.
