Denise Gaudreau Award

This biennial award of $500 was established to support the early career development of women scientists in Quaternary studies. Female scientists in any field of Quaternary studies within two years prior to completing the Ph.D. (i.e., they have not yet finished their dissertation research) are encouraged to apply. Membership in AMQUA and citizenship in the United States are not required. Selection will be based on scientific accomplishments, promise, and demonstration of original thinking. Emphasis will be placed on the quality and carefulness of the work, rather than solely on quantity.
Applications should include:

  1. Curriculum vitae (no page limit)
  2. Summary of research interests, accomplishments, and goals (not to exceed two pages)
  3. Copy of graduate transcripts (signed by the Advisor). Photocopies of transcripts will suffice. For credits shown in transcripts under general titles, such as independent studies or seminars, briefly describe the subject(s) of the seminar or independent study on a separate page.
  4. Name, address, e-mail address, and phone number of two referees to contact after initial committee screening.

    Applications for the 2020 Award must be submitted by March 30, 2020. The award will be presented at the 2020 AMQUA Biennial Meeting and announced on the AMQUA Web site and listserve. The award will also include support to cover registration cost and up to $300 in travel expenses to attend the meeting. Gaudreau applicants are encouraged to present a poster at the meeting.
