Geoscience Education Research (GER) Division Awards

NAGT's GER Division is pleased to offer several Division awards:

Collaboration Award

The spirit of this award is to recognize the contribution of non-GER collaborators and acknowledge that the effort of interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary research requires a commitment that is not always recognized within one's home discipline or institution. Contributions may include, but are not limited to, engaging in original research or fruitful collaborations that apply new methodologies and/or theoretical frameworks to GER, creating expanded opportunities to publish GER literature beyond the geosciences, present GER research at conferences not typically attended by the GER community, and/or building capacity within the GER community.

Emerging GER Scholars Award

This award is intended to recognize promising graduate students pursing a Master's or Ph.D. in the field of geoscience education research, and to provide financial support for personal and professional expenses to broaden the set of opportunities available to those scholars. The division particularly invites applications from scholars from a wide range of backgrounds and from identity groups that have been historically marginalized in geoscience education research.Learn more about the Emerging
