Atlantic Geoscience Society
Société Géoscientifique de l'Atlantique

Loans and Grants
Each year, the Atlantic Geoscience Society (AGS) will consider requests for loans and/or grants for projects (products, events, etc) that can be used to help advance the goals of the society, namely: the communication of ideas and information about the Earth and earth science to both the professional geoscience community and the general public in Atlantic Canada and beyond.
AGS does not typically consider requests that are normally under the remit of research funding bodies (e.g. NSERC) and individual universities (e.g. prizes, awards, travel funds).
All requests for loans and/or grants must adhere to the appropriate by-law (and associated appendix) of the society, By-law 44:
In accordance with the above, all applicants for loans and/or grants should complete and sign the following "Proposal for Funding" and submit it to the Products Committee of the Society (preferably electronically).
