The Goldschmidt Conference is the joint annual meeting of the Geochemical Society and the European Association of Geochemistry. Both societies are committed to making the conference accessible to students and early career scientists. The Goldschmidt Grant Program provides funding from a variety of sources to help students and early career scientists attend the meeting.
The program provides waived registration fees and travel support for early career delegates who reside in countries designated by the World Bank as "low-income" or "lower-middle-income" economies. Additionally, grants for US-based students and postdocs are available through support from US funding agencies.
The deadline to apply for a grant is March 15, 2019.
