Students of mineral resources throughout the world may apply to the Society of Economic Geologists for thesis research grants. The purpose of the grants is to provide partial support of master’s and doctoral thesis research for graduate students. A limited number of grants may be available to undergraduate students to support exceptional honors degree or equivalent thesis research projects. The Society of Economic Geologists Foundation makes awards from the Hugh E. McKinstry Fund, the Hickok-Radford Fund, the Newmont Fund, the Hugo Dummett Mineral Discovery Fund, the Alberto Terrones L. Fund, the Timothy Nutt Memorial Fund, and the Society of Economic Geologists Canada Foundation Fund. The Hugh E. McKinstry Fund supports research with a substantial field component. The Hickok-Radford awards are granted for field projects in challenging arctic or sub-arctic regions, including high altitude equivalents elsewhere. The Newmont grants emphasize gold mineralization and metallogeny studies with a strong field component and with practical exploration implications. The Hugo Dummett Fund supports applied economic geology research including development of new exploration technology and techniques. The Terrones L. Fund is intended for studies at U.S. and Canadian universities by Mexican, Peruvian or other Latin American students.
