How to apply?
The award applications must be lodged by email (email@example.com) and will include an outline of no more than 300 words of the proposed project. Applications for the 2021 grant year will open Friday December 18 and close on Friday January 15.
A selection panel appointed by the GSA Victoria will judge the submissions and the panel will reserve the right to make as many awards as they feel appropriate, within the constraints of the budget.
Successful applicants will be notified no later than the following February committee meeting. The awards will then be announced to the members at the April Annual General Meeting and will be published in The Victorian Geologist (TVG).
