The Paleontological Society seeks to support undergraduate students
interested in a career in paleontology who plan on attending the 2022
National Geological Society of America meeting in Denver, Colorado (October
9-12).

A limited number of grants are available to offset travel costs: $1,000 if
the student is presenting original research at GSA and $500 if the student
is just attending the meeting. Remember abstracts are due July 19th, 2022.

In addition to travel support, students will participate in mentoring
opportunities with professional paleontologists and graduate students while
at the meeting and receive a free 1‐year student membership to the
Paleontological Society.

In exchange, PS‐SAP students will be expected to volunteer at the PS booth
for at least 5 hours during the meeting, and to use social media (e.g.,
blogs, facebook,Twitter, Instagram) to communicate to the Society about
their experience at the meeting. In this way, students will serve as “
ambassadors” for the Society.

To be eligible, students must be enrolled as an undergraduate student at an
institution of higher education, have a stated interest in learning more
about careers in paleontology, and be willing to use social media to
promote PS activities at the conference. Students with diverse backgrounds
(including race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, neurodiversity,
accessibility, first-generation college, etc.) are encouraged to apply.

The program is not limited to U. S. students.
