The aim of the John T. Dillon Alaska Research Award is to support research that addresses earth science problems particular to Alaska, especially field-based studies dealing with the structural and tectonic development, and those that include some aspect of geochronology (either paleontologic or radiometric) to provide new age control for significant rock units in Alaska. Only members of the Society are eligible. Grants are awarded only to individuals. Institutions, societies, universities, and so on are not eligible for grants. Only under the most unusual circumstances will postdoctorate and faculty research be supported. Undergraduate students are not eligible. GSA strongly encourages women, minorities, and persons with disabilities to participate fully in this grants program. Candidates for advanced degrees must present their projects under their own names and support them adequately by informative documentation. Grants will not carry allowances to institutions to cover overhead costs. Applications are evaluated on the basis of the scientific merits of the problems, the capability of the investigator, and reasonableness of the budget. Applications must be submitted on the current form.
