Congratulations to PCIGR students Sarah Jackson-Brown and Matthew Manor, who were awarded SEG Student Research Grants!

These grants assist students with field and laboratory expenses for thesis research on mineral deposits as required for graduate degrees at accredited universities.  Grants are awarded on a competitive basis and are available to students worldwide.  This year’s 66 successful candidates come from 30 different universities in 12 countries.
