Good Afternoon Sacramento AEG,
Spreading the word about two AEG items relating to our students, educators, and young professionals. This is especially useful for educators and young professionals looking to attend the September 2018 Annual Meeting and students looking to receive grant money for their student chapters. Please see the information blurbs below and feel free to pass along the information!

AEG’s Student and Young Professional Support Committee is currently accepting applications for the young professional and educator travel grants for the upcoming annual meeting. See attached for the applications, which are due July 31st! (Deadline extended beyond what’s shown on the applications.) These grants are for $500 each, and are awarded to current members on the basis of meeting involvement and need.

Want to Support Future Geologists? Make a Donation to the John Moylan Student Chapter Grant Program
AEG’s Student and Young Professional Support Committee and the AEG Foundation offer two grants to student chapters each semester for activities that promote AEG involvement at the chapter and national level, such as to cover travel expenses to AEG chapter meetings and for field trips that include drilling demonstrations and field mapping, and to purchase field equipment. Typically, these grants are $250 each, but the amount depends on available funds. The grants are funded through the AEG Foundation’s John Moylan Student Chapter Grant Fund. The Student and Young Professional Support Committee manages this program and makes award recommendations to the AEG Foundation. Please consider making a donation to support our student chapters. Remember, these students are the future of AEG and our profession. You can donate to the John Moylan Fund at www.aegfoundation.org/donate. The AEG Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit, so donations are tax deductible.
