About the award

The Elsevier Research Scholarships are given every year, normally to two young scientists (Masters, Ph. D. or recently qualified Post Doc), working in the field of organic geochemistry who would benefit from the opportunity to undertake a period of research which may be at their home institution or at a different university or commercial/industry laboratory.

The Elsevier Research Scholarship is intended to encourage exchange of ideas, expertise and techniques and cultivate the scientific dialogue which Elsevier and Organic  Geochemistry believe to be fundamental to the advancement of research. However, the Elsevier Research Scholarship, unlike the EAOG Travel Scholarship is not exclusively for laboratory exchange students, but may support early-career scientists at their home institution.

The award is proudly sponsored by the journal Organic Geochemistry and Elsevier.
