Calendar for 2015

5/11/15 VGS Research Grant postmarked deadline extended (for May 1, 2015 applications)
Details: Recent discussions by the VGS Executive Committee recommended that the spring deadline be extended to May 1st to better accommodate students, who have recently been selected for upcoming field projects, but are not prepared yet to write a research grant. Due to the late notice of this extension, Jon Kim will accept research grant applications for the new May 1st deadline that are postmarked by Monday May 11th. Send grant applications to Jon Kim, Vermont Geological Survey, 1 National Life Drive, Main 2, Montpelier, VT 05620-3902.
