2014 GSA Research Grant Recipients

July 25th, 2014

Twelve Oregon State students received the 2014 GSA Research grant. The primary role of the GSA (Geological Society of America) research grants program is to provide partial support of master’s and doctoral thesis research in the geological sciences for graduate students enrolled in universities in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Central America. In 2014, $683,535 was awarded to 401 graduate students (52% of the 774 who applied), with an average grant of $1,680. Bethany Murphy received an outstanding mention for her conception and presentation, and the ExxonMobil grant that recognizes 10 of the top 30 GSA student research grant proposals with a grant of $7,500 each. Nicholas Bill, received the John T. Dillon Alaska Research Award. This award honors Dillon’s work on radiometric age-dating work in the Brooks Range, Alaska. Two areas which serve as guidelines for selection of the award are field-based studies dealing with the structural and tectonic development of Alaska, and studies which include some aspect of geochronology (either paleontologic or radiometric) to provide new age control for significant rock units in Alaska. The full list of grant recipients are listed below:
