ODNR Accepting Geological Research Grant Applications
Ohio Ag Connection - 09/21/2020

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources' Division of Geological Survey is accepting applications for the Ohio Geology Student Research Grant program. In its sixth academic year, the program supports both graduate and undergraduate students who conduct geologic research in the state.

The ODNR Division of Geological Survey will award grants of $2,500 each to three earth science students at Ohio colleges and universities.

Each grantee will be selected based on the quality of their application, the strength of their professor's letter of recommendation, and the relevancy of their proposed research.

"I always look forward to receiving the grant applications each year and seeing the wide variety of interesting projects being undertaken across the state," said ODNR Division of Geological Survey Chief and State Geologist Mike Angle.

"Last year was the first year that we accepted undergraduate applications, so we now get to see some exciting proposals from students at colleges without graduate programs."

Previous grant recipients have conducted studies that further our understanding of Ohio geology, including mapping of stratigraphy and glacial features, analysis of building stone, and delineating stream patterns, among other projects.

The deadline for application submission is Dec. 4.

The application and complete submission guidelines can be found at

Candidates must be enrolled in a full-time graduate or undergraduate earth science studies program at an accredited college or university in Ohio for the 2020-21 year.
