Carbon Research Funding Opportunity for Doctoral students, Post-docs and Assistant Professors

Dear Colleague,

We want to notify you about a funding opportunity for doctoral candidates, Post-docs
or Assistant Professors who have research areas that investigate Carbon broadly,
and the role that Carbon plays in the larger Earth-system. The American
Geosciences Institute (AGI) is working with the Deep Carbon Observatory (DCO) of
the Carnegie Institute of Washington to recruit underrepresented minority
researchers to become engaged in their community by offering $4,500 seed awards
to eligible applicants. Funding is generously provided by the Alfred P. Sloan
Foundation, and can be applied toward many different areas of Carbon-related
research. Funds can be used to support a number of research-related activities,
including travel for conferences, travel to DCO-hosted workshops and events,
instrumentation time at Carnegie, or costs associated with field work, lab work
or data collection. To learn more about the exciting research that DCO conducts,
please visit their website: https://deepcarbon.net/.

If you, your students or colleagues are attending the American Geophysical
Union's Fall Meeting next week, please stop by AGI's booth (#1016) for more
information and eligibility requirements.

Additionally, you can find out more information on the funding opportunity by
going to AGI's scholarship website:
