Enhancing Diversity in Geoscience Graduate Education (EDGE) November 10-11, 2022

The Jackson School of Geosciences (JSG) at The University of Texas at Austin invites students who will contribute to a diverse and inclusive community at the school to submit an application to attend the JSG EDGE: Enhancing Diversity in Geosciences Graduate School Education-Graduate School Preview November 10-11, 2022. This program is based on the successful EDGE (Enhancing Diversity in Graduate Education) programs funded by the National Science Foundation.

Thank you for your interest in the JSG EDGE Graduate School Preview!
November 10-11, 2022

The JSG EDGE event is designed to encourage US citizens and permanent residents traditionally underrepresented in the geosciences to apply to train with JSG faculty and research scientists whose research agendas are of interest to the students.

At the JSG EDGE 2022, students meet in person with Jackson School of Geosciences faculty and research scientists interested in training diverse graduate students to conduct interdisciplinary geoscience research for the lasting benefit of humankind. Students will also meet with current JSG graduate students via a panel and social mixers, hear about some of the research at JSG via lightning talks by faculty and research scientists, and take tours of JSG labs.

Selected applicants learn about the graduate school application process, funding opportunities, and about interdisciplinary research training opportunities in the Geosciences for students with Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Mathematics, Computer Science, Geology and other STEM degrees.
