The American Geophysical Union invites applications for a $5000 fellowship in the history of science to a doctoral student completing a dissertation in the history of the geophysical sciences, which include topics related to atmospheric sciences, biogeosciences, geodesy, geomagnetism and paleomagnetism, hydrology, ocean sciences, planetary sciences, seismology, space physics, aeronomy, tectonophysics, volocanology, geochemistry, and petrology.

* a detailed description of the dissertation topic and proposed research plan (10 typed pages maximum)
* three letters of recommendation, one of which must be from the dissertation director
