Tilly Edinger Travel Grant

The Tilly Edinger Travel Grant provided by Time Scavengers through the generous contributions from our community members and donors helps support student (enrolled undergraduates, MS/PhD) and avocational scientists’ travel to conference.  Applicants do not have to present original research at the conference to be eligible for the grant, however, they must be researchers in, involved with, or representing and interested in paleo-related sciences (including but not limited to paleontology, paleoclimatology, paleoceanography, macroevolution, and paleobiogeography). Preference will be given to applicants with a lack of funding and travel support.

Virtual Internship Program for Science Communication

VIP SciComm is a paid, 5-week internship program that is only available to sophomore and junior- level undergraduate students currently enrolled in U.S.-based colleges and universities majoring in the natural sciences (including but not limited to biology, geology, climatology, and environmental science). Preference will be given to students who have not yet had extensive research and internship experiences prior to applying for this program.
