To promote Early Career Scientists, the European Association of Geochemistry has created the Early Career Science Ambassador Program.
This program is aimed at Early Career Scientists based in Europe who wish to attend conferences outside Europe, except for the Goldschmidt conference*. The program will support up to 9 scientists per year.
Supported scientists will have 50% of their expenses covered by EAG, up to 2000 Euros, and be viewed as EAG Ambassadors while attending the event. They will receive an ‘Ambassador Package’.
During the event, EAG Ambassadors should display EAG’s support on their presentation or poster (EAG logo, acknowledgements etc).
Following the event, supported scientists should provide a short report on their experience, including a few photos, for publication on the EAG Blog.
Also if data presented at the event appears in a publication, EAG’s support should be acknowledged.
When registering for the conference, please make sure to use all available discount rates – reimbursement of the conference fee will in general be based on the lowest rate (early student registration, if applicable, or member reigstration rate).
