The International Ichnological Association has established three Scholarships, The Jordi M. de Gibert Atienza, the Dolf Seilacher and the George Pemberton Scholarships. These different grants focus on supporting the development of multifaceted venues in ichnological research. Please, consider to donate; it is a way to promote ichnologic work and early career researchers! For more details, see Ichnological Association website
Jordi M. de Gibert Atienza Scholarship .
This scholarship was established to honor Jordi, a friend and enthusiastic ichnologist, who was a strong supporter of student involvement and international collaboration. This fund supports graduate student participation to primarily ICHNIA, the International Congress of Ichnology, and when funds allow to other international meetings (TBD). The first recipient of the JMGA scholarship will be announced at ICHNIA 2016, calls for applications are planned about six months in advance to the meeting. For more information, click here .
George Pemberton Scholarship.
This scholarship is aimed to promote excellence in applied ichnology. It is named after George Pemberton who has successfully situated ichnology as a fundamental tool in Petroleum geology, integrating ichnology to facies analysis, sequence stratigraphy and reservoir characterization. The first recipient of the GP scholarship will be announced at ICHNIA 2016, calls for application are planned about six months in advance to the meeting
“Dolf” Seilacher Scholarship.
This scholarship is designed to outline innovative contributions to the conceptual background of ichnology. It is named after Adolf (“Dolf”) Seilacher, arguably the father of modern ichnology. Dolf visited every corner of the globe inspiring and mentoring countless generations of ichnologists. The first recipient of the GP scholarship will be announced at ICHNIA 2016, calls for application are planned about six months in advance to the meeting.
