Scholarship deadline extended for AWG Chrysalis Scholarship

From the Association for Women Geoscientists' e-news:

The deadline for applications for the 2009 AWG Chrysalis Scholarship has been extended to March 31st.

The Chrysalis Scholarship provides degree-completion funding for women geoscience graduate students whose education has been interrupted for at least one year. The awards are intended to cover thesis/dissertation costs such as typing or drafting expenses, child-care, or anything necessary to assist a degree candidate during those critical, final days.

More information and instructions on how to apply are available on the AWG website at
