As hinted in my last post there was some big news in the pipeline. I wanted to wait until I had the official documents and confirmation. A few months ago I applied for the 2012 Graduate Student Fellowship of the Society of Economic Geologists (SEG).
Now I received the official confirmation that I have been awarded a Graduate Student Fellowship intended to support my graduate studies part of my recently started Ph.D. project! The award comes in the forms of a financial allowance for my research. Considering the still unsecure financing of my Ph.D this will allow me to produce some hands-on data for at least one publication. I am already having some ideas in terms of stable isotopes and SEM imaging. :)
