Are you a student looking to fund your innovative research in Cryospheric Science? Consider participating in the Flash Freeze competition at this year’s Fall Meeting!

The AGU Cryosphere Section Executive Committee is now accepting applications for the Cryosphere Innovation Award for Students that will be decided in the Flash Freeze competition on Thursday, December 14, 2017. The award is open to all students attending the 2017 Fall Meeting and is given to support and recognize innovative student-led research in the Cryospheric Sciences.

Students wishing to participate in this year’s competition will be required to submit a letter of intent (not to exceed one (1) page) and a CV (not to exceed two (2) pages) to the Innovation Award subcommittee chaired by Brooke Medley via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  by November 17, 2017 at midnight US eastern time.

Approximately twenty (20) applicants will be selected for participation in the Flash Freeze competition and will be notified on December 1, 2017. During the competition, the student will give a two-minute pitch of their innovative idea to a panel of five (5) judges. Slides or props may be used but the pitch cannot exceed the two-minute allowance. The Flash Freeze event will be held at the 2017 Fall Meeting Thursday, December 14, 2017 from 6:15 pm – 8:15 pm in the Hilton Riverside Camp room. It is a requirement that the student must already be attending the 2017 Fall Meeting to participate. This year it is expected that ~5 awards of $1000 each will be awarded to the student winners from the Flash Freeze event to pursue their innovative research.

Further specific details can be found here, and we look forward to seeing exciting and innovative student-led ideas at this year’s event.
