[20130601] 2014 Edward H. Kraus Grant for Research in Crystallography

The Mineralogical Society of America announces the 2014 MSA Grant for Research in Crystallography from the Edward H. Kraus Crystallographic Research Fund with contributions from MSA members and friends.

The grant awards up to $5,000 for research in the field of mineralogical crystallography.

This grant targets projects within the areas of mineralogy, crystal chemistry, petrology, mineral physics, biomineralization, and geochemistry for which research bearing on crystal structure is an explicit and integral element. Students, including graduate and undergraduate students, are encouraged to apply, in addition to young researchers. However, all proposals are considered together. The award selection will be based on the qualifications of the applicant, the quality, innovativeness, and scientific significance of the research, and the likelihood of success of the project.

The grant is for research-related expenses only.

Further information and application form are available at http://www.minsocam.org/MSA/Awards/Crystallography_Award.html

The next award will be made in January, 2014.

Proposal submissions accepted until the deadline of June 1st, 2013.
