U.S. Graduate Student Scholarships for the Urbino Summer School in Paleoclimatology (USSP)
The 10th Urbino Summer School in Paleoclimatology (10-30 July 2013; http://www.urbinossp.it/) will provide graduate students with an intensive program on reconstructing the history and dynamics of paleoclimate through an integrated series of lectures, investigations, case studies, and field and laboratory analyses.
To promote U.S. graduate student participation in this international experience, the NSF Geoscience Divisions and the Office of International Science and Engineering are funding ten scholarships to cover U.S. carrier airfare, stipend, and course expenses (including lodging).
Interested students in U.S.-based graduate programs should email a one-page CV and one-page statement on how the program would benefit their professional development as a researcher and educator to email@example.com. In addition, students should request their primary adviser to email a recommendation letter directly to the above email address. Members of historically underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.
Deadline for receipt of all application material, including recommendation letters, is 1 May 2013.
