The GSSI Student Grant

This grant awards up to $2,000 to AGU student members who have designated Near-Surface as one of their AGU affiliations. If funding exists, more than one award may be made in a year.

In addition to the cash award, GSSI will make loaner equipment available for the winner(s) to use. GSSI will coordinate this equipment loan directly with the student winner(s) and will do their best to coordinate and make any necessary GSSI equipment available.

This grant is being established through the generosity of Geophysical Survey Systems, Inc. (GSSI) in order to support AGU’s Near-Surface Geophysics Focus Group’s student scientists conducting field geophysical research using Ground-Penetrating Radar (GPR) and Electromagnetic (EM) methods.
