Award Deadline to Attend the 2014 EGU GIFT Workshop in Vienna, Austria

The 2014 GIFT (Geosciences Information for Teachers) workshop will take place on April 28 - 30, 2014 during the General Assembly of EGU in Vienna, Austria. The general theme of the workshop is: Our Changing Planet and it will explore some of the recent complex changes of our environment, particularly in the framework of the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

Again this year, the generous William Goree Award will support the participation of a teacher from the United States in the 2014 GIFT Symposium at the 2014 European Geosciences Union General Assembly. The selected teacher will receive a travel /hotel stipend and free registration to the meeting.

The participating teacher will be selected based on their teaching experience and the supporting statement from their school administration. The selected teacher will be expected to attend the entire workshop and submit a report within 1 year after the workshop on their impression of the workshop and how they plan to use this experience in their future teaching activities.

Application Deadline: December 6th. The selected teacher will be notified by December 15th.
