New Mexico Geological Society grants are awarded every spring to support research by graduate students attending a New Mexico University. A graduate student may also apply for a Graduate Mentorship Grant as an additional funding increment to a "grant-in-aid" application. These grants allow a graduate student to employ and closely mentor an undergraduate student in research activities for a year.
The Society promotes interest in geology and associated sciences, fosters scientific research and publications, encourages cooperation among its members, and stimulates interest in New Mexico geology.
These research grants are awarded every spring to support research by graduate students attending a New Mexico University. Amount may vary, but is a maximum of $2000 per award. Selection is made by the NMGS Scholarship Committee. Grant-in-Aid applicants are automatically eligible for the Kottlowski Research Award and Cearley Grant-In- Aid. The two top-ranked grant-in-aid applicants will receive the Kottlowski Research Award or Cearley Grant-In-Aid Award rather than an NMGS Grant-in-Aid.
A graduate student may also apply for a Graduate Mentorship Grant (amount will vary, with a maximum of $1500) as an additional funding increment to a “grant-in-aid” application. These grants allow a graduate student to employ and closely mentor an undergraduate student in research activities for a year. A brief statement of the anticipated duties and research training to be provided the undergraduate student can be added to the graduate student’s grant-in-aid application.
