This competitive award provides women geoscience students with support to present
their research at the Annual Meeting of the Geological Society of America.
This travel award is named for Virginia (Ginny) Sand (1928-2007), an award-winning
geoscience teacher and world traveler. Ginny graduated from Northwestern University
with a degree in geology, and she spent three decades teaching geoscience at Kent
State University after obtaining her MA. Her many activities supporting AWG included
serving as editor of Gaea (1988-1991). Her travel destinations ranged from the
Galapagos Islands to Iceland and, at the age of 76, included a journey to Antarctica.
The award is to be used to help defray travel, lodging, registration fee, and other
expenses associated with the presentation of the awardee’s research at the Annual
Meeting of the Geological Society of America including but not exclusive to sessions
sponsored by the National Association of Geoscience Teachers.
