Read the GSA Today article about this award (v.21, no.2, Feb. 2011).
GSA and ExxonMobil are excited to announce the third annual Field Seminar in the Bighorn Basin of north-central Wyoming, which will emphasize multi-disciplinary integrated basin analysis.
GSA aims to enhance its educational program by offering a seminar concerning certain geologic aspects of the Bighorn Basin of Montana and Wyoming. The Bighorn Basin Field Program seeks to energize and enhance the education of geology students and faculty by introducing them to the breadth and challenges of integrated basin and petroleum systems analysis.
This August, undergraduate students, graduate students and faculty will participate in this field program, with all expenses covered including hotel, airfare, and meals.
The application period will be open 1 February - 1 April.
Your complete application will consist of:
- an online resume,
- two letters of recommendation,
- academic transcripts (for undergraduates and graduates only - not faculty), and
- a cover letter indicating your background (coursework and any pursuits you have outside of academia that would relate to this program), your plans for the future (short-term and long-term) and how you feel this trip will help you accomplish these plans.
Applicants will be chosen by a committee who will strongly consider your cover letter, letters of recommendation and GPA.
Note: you must be a GSA member to apply for this award.
