Each year, SSA invites U.S. graduate student members to apply for grants to attend Geosciences Congressional Visits Day (Geo‐CVD). This SSA student member opportunity is made possible by the generous support of SSA members—you can donate to the SSA Geo‐CVD Travel Grant Fund when you renew your SSA membership.
You don’t have to be a student to take part in Geo‐CVD. If you’d like to participate, send an e‐mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with “2017 Geo‐CVD” in the subject line.
Student Geo‐CVD grant‐winners write brief essays about their experiences; the 2016 Geo‐CVD winners’ essays are published below.
