AGU administers programs to provide travel and research support for student and early-career Earth and space scientists

Student Travel Grants

A limited number of travel grants are available for students planning to attend AGU meetings and conferences. This program provides financial assistance to U.S. and international young scientists and students who have little or no support from research contracts or grants, and who are presenting for the first time an oral/poster presentation as first author at the meeting. Application requirements and funding amounts vary by meeting.
