The Mineralogical Society of America announces the 2024 Grants for Student Research in Mineralogy and Petrology.
The Grants for Student Research in Mineralogy and Petrology are funded by an endowment created by contributions from the MSA membership. The grant comprises up to two graduate student awards of up to $5,000 each and one undergraduate student award of up to $2,000 for research in mineralogy and petrology. Students, including graduate and undergraduate students, are encouraged to apply. 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. Applicants may not apply for both this and the MSA Grant for Research in Crystallography in the same year. The grant is for research-related expenses only.
Proposal submissions for the grant are to be made online. Further information and application form are available at
Completed applications must be submitted online to the MSA Business Office by March 1, 2024. The next award will be made in May 2024.
