Request-for-proposals due by June 12
The Geosynthetic Institute (GSI) has announced a worldwide call for requests-for-proposals (RFPs) focusing on innovative geosynthetics research and development projects.
There are numerous awards given, each for $5,000. (Note that this is a change from previous years of the program in that the terms are different and that the students can be pursuing either masters or doctoral degrees.)
Selection emphasis is placed on relevant topics of interest and of concern to the geosynthetics community. A list of possible topics (there are obviously many others) is available upon request.
The proposals must be submitted in the following four-page format (with no exceptions):
Page 1-Letter of recommendation from student’s department head or advisor
Page 2-Title and detailed abstract of proposed project
Page 3-Student’s resume
Page 4-Relevancy of topic to the geosynthetics community
The RFPs for the 2015-2016 academic year must be submitted to Jamie Koerner (see below) via email by Friday, June 12, 2015. Review of the proposals is by the nine-person GSI Board of Directors. Awards will be announced on or before July 30, 2015.
