Jerome M. Paros Scholarships in Geophysical Instrumentation -- Now Accepting Applications! 

The Paros Scholarships in Geophysical Instrumentation were established through the generosity of Jerome M. Paros to support graduate students with a demonstrated interest in geophysical instrumentation and precise field measurements in seismology, atmospheric sciences, or ocean sciences. This $5000 scholarship is awarded to three students each year to help build a solid pool of talent working on and interested in geophysical instrumentation.
Application deadline: 27 March 2024
