Global Award

Introducing the award

The Computers & Geosciences Research Scholarship is intended to encourage exchange of ideas, expertise and techniques and cultivate the scientific dialogue which Elsevier, Computers and Geosciences and the International Association for Mathematical Geosciences believe to be fundamental to the advancement of research.

Between two and four Computers & Geosciences Research Scholarships will be awarded every year, to early career scientists (postgraduate students i.e. Masters or Doctoral candidates, or Post-Doctoral researchers) working in the field of computational geosciences or geoinformatics. The total annual budget for these scholarships is US $10,000.
