Student support:

We encourage talented students to participate to GES12 by applying for a European Association of Geochemistry (EAG) sponsored scholarship. Successful applicants will pay a reduced registration fee of CHF 100 (or CHF 70 for an early registration before May 1, 2022). We can offer this scholarship to five students.

MSc and PhD students can apply by sending a cover letter (max. one page), a CV (max. two pages) and an abstract using this template to until April 1, 2022.

The selection process for the scholarships will be based on these criteria and in this order:

1) The quality of the abstract.

2) The need for additional support of the candidate. Preference will be given to students applying from countries listed in the DAC List of ODA recipients (OECD).

3) The gender-balance.

4) The balance between Master and PhD students.

Non IAGC members

If you are not a member of the International Association of GeoChemistry IAGC, the early registration fee is CHF 580 and the normal registration is CHF 630. These amounts include a one-year IAGC membership starting the following year.
