Joseph A. Cushman Awards for Student Research

Description

The award supports worthy Master's and Doctoral Student research projects dealing with the systematics, biostratigraphy, paleoecology, and ecology of fossil or living foraminifera. Research on geochemistry using microfossils only as geochemical indicators is not funded; however, geochemistry that relates to any aspect of living or fossil foraminifera is fundable and should be explained. Current students with developed research projects in these areas are encouraged to apply for support. Submit a description of the proposed research, why it is important, a detailed budget with justification for the expenditures and a curriculum vitae. A letter of support from the student's faculty advisor is also required. No award will be made for more than $3000.
