These awards are available for students attending field courses at any time of year and can be applied to face-to-face, virtual, or hybrid courses. The intent of the awards is to support students' participation in intensive field courses in any aspect of geoscience.
Thanks to generous donations from NAGT members and donors, a fund was established to support students attending the Preparing for an Academic Career workshop held held at the annual Earth Educators' Rendezvous. Graduate students and post-docs interested an academic careers are encouraged to attend.
These grants (named in honor of NAGT's first female president, Dorothy "Dottie" Stout) are awarded to faculty and students at two-year colleges and K-12 teachers in support of: participation in Earth science classes or workshops; attendance at professional scientific or science education meetings; participation in Earth science field trips; or purchase of Earth science materials for classroom use.
