The Federation of Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP
<http://esipfed.org>) is excited to announce that we are now accepting
applications for the Raskin Scholarship (*due 10/1*) and ESIP
Student Fellows (*due 10/9*).
*ESIP Student Fellows <http://esipfed.org/StudentFellows>* are graduate
students interested in bridging the gap between informatics and Earth
Science. This fellowship provides students a chance to work closely with
professionals in an interdisciplinary, cross-sector group (ESIP
collaboration area) on current Earth Science problems. Student fellows
become engaged in ESIP collaboration areas as rapporteurs, documenting
group activities on monthly telecons and at ESIP’s semi-annual meetings
(Summer/Winter). As fellows become more familiar with collaboration-area
activities they may choose to integrate their own research, which can
result in publication and additional funding opportunities. Student Fellows
will receive a stipend of $2000 plus travel expenses to the summer and
winter ESIP meetings.
The* Raskin Scholarship <http://esipfed.org/raskinscholarship> *is in
memory of Rob Raskin, a long-time ESIP community member and major
contributor to Earth science informatics field. The scholarship is awarded
to a current graduate student studying an Earth science, computer science
or closely related discipline and have an interest in fields related to
current technical, scientific or applied activities of the ESIP Federation.
In addition to a cash prize, the awarded scholar will give a keynote talk
at the 2015 ESIP Summer Meeting.
Please feel free to forward these opportunities along to other networks of
interest. For full details on the either of these opportunities see the ESIPFed
website <http://esipfed.org/node/2423>. For questions, please e-mail me at
