IODP_Logo_NEW_crop(Washington, D.C.) – The U.S. Science Support Program of the Consortium for Ocean Leadership is pleased to announce the 2014-2015 Schlanger Ocean Drilling Fellows.

Each year, the program awards $30,000 stipends to several outstanding graduate students who conduct research related to the Schlanger, a multinational marine research program dedicated to advancing scientific understanding of the Earth through drilling, coring and monitoring the subseafloor.

The 2014-2015 Schlanger Fellows are:

  • Michelle Drake, University of California, Santa Cruz
  • Alan Foreman, University of California, San Diego
  • Dalton Hardisty, University of California, Riverside
  • Justine Sauvage, University of Rhode Island
  • Xingchen (Tony) Wang, Princeton University

“The latest cohort of Schlanger Fellows are all creative, motivated young scientists who are already making their mark in marine geoscience,” said Jeff Schuffert, Director of the U.S. Science Support Program. “They join a long line of past cohorts who have set a very high bar, and we are certain that the newest Fellows are up to the task.”

The Schlanger Fellows may use the award to cover the cost of tuition, research expenses, and travel to field expeditions and/or scientific meetings. This year’s fellows – selected for the quality of their proposed projects – will focus on topics that include nutrient cycling, deep ocean temperature changes, and sea ice behavior.

The Schlanger Fellowships are named after the late Seymour Schlanger, a renowned geologist and early leader in scientific ocean drilling. For more information on the 2014-2015 Schlanger Fellows, visit http://usssp-iodp.org/research/schlanger-fellowships/current/
