IAGA Young Scientist Award
In Toulouse in 2005, the IAGA Executive Committee (EC) decided to establish an IAGA Young Scientist Presentation Award for outstanding presentations by young scientists at topical meetings. During its meeting in 2012, the EC decided to rename the award the IAGA Young Scientist Award. The award aims to recognize, motivate and acknowledge excellent and promising young scientists, whose research, presentation and overall performance at the topical meeting meet high international standards and represent big potential for the future of IAGA.
The award consists of support to participate in the next IAGA Assembly.
Nominees for the award must have presented their research at a topical, IAGA-sponsored meeting. The presentation should be exceptional by international standards, so a nomination from every meeting is not expected. (IAGA News 43, 2006).
The nominee should satisfy both of the following two criteria* by 31 December of the year when the topical meeting was held:
- be in age 30 or younger,
- be an undergraduate or postgraduate (Masters/PhD) student or have received her/his highest degree qualification (e.g., BSc, MSc, PhD) within the last two years.
- Nominations are made by the Local Organising Committee of a topical meeting sponsored by IAGA. Guidelines for nomination
- Decisions are made by the IAGA Executive Committee, typically for 4 to 5 recipients of the award at an upcoming IAGA Assembly.
