THE CRANWELL AWARD

SUPPORTING STUDENT RESEARCH IN PALYNOLOGY

Cranwellia Cretaceous Pollen


The Cranwell Award supports palynological research by graduate students working in the various aspects of palynology; including paleopalynology, aeropalynology, forensic palynology, melissopalynology, and pollination ecology. The award was established in 1983 by Lucy Cranwell and Watson Smith.

The Award can support most aspects of graduate student research, but is primarily intended to cover field expenses including travel and lodging. It may also be used to pay for radiometric dating, drafting, and computer time, but not for routine laboratory costs in the pollen laboratory, and certainly not for counting of pollen. It is not intended to cover publication costs or travel to present papers.

Since 1995, at least one recipient per year has been selected from the pool of applicants for the AASP Student Scholarship by the Head of the Cranwell Award Committee. A using the critera stated above, the recipient is selected from the top-ranked applicants judged by the AASP Awards Committee. No separate application form is required, other than that for the AASP Student Scholarship.
