Miller-Marsden Prize for Innovative Research on the Environment

The Miller-Marsden Prize for Innovative Research on the Environment is named for two former faculty members in the Petroleum Engineering Department, (the late) Professor Frank Miller and (the late) Professor Sully Marsden. It carries a prize of $1000. Earth Systems students who have undertaken innovative research (internship, MS research, honors) on an environmental topic and who want to submit the written results of that work for prize consideration are invited to do so. A self-nomination package should include the research paper and a brief letter defending its "innovative" character (4 copies of each). All candidates should be prepared to give an oral presentation on the results of their research, as the winner may be asked to do so.
Miller-Marsden submissions are due late spring quarter to Julie Kennedy.
