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 (Thursday, December 10 at 6:00 pm). The award is open to all students attending the 2020 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 will be 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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) by November 25, 2020 at midnight US eastern time.
Approximately twenty (20) applicants will be selected for participation in the Flash Freeze competition and will be notified on December 1, 2020. 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 take place Thursday, December 10 at 6:00 pm. This year it is expected that ~5 awards of $1000 each will be awarded to the student winners from the Flash Freeze event to pursue their innovative research.
