The 41st Steering Committee had endorsed the implementation of EAGER-a trust fund set up in the Geological Society of America with personal contribution of Dr Rick Terman, CCOP Honorary Advisor, to be used for funding research in geoscience in the region. Under the programme, Dr Maurice J. “Ric” Terman generously proposed a contribution of USD 100,000 as principal for the EAGER fund. Proceeds of the principal sum estimated at 5% per annum, (USD 5 000 per year) will be made available as grant(s) for final year PhD student or for post-Doctoral research in Geoscience and Environment in East Asia.
The grant will be available for candidates from the Member Country hosting the Annual Session with the proceeds of the principal sum only will be used to finance the grant.
CCOP will assist in the implementation of the Grant and the procedure is outlined in the project proposal attached, and summarized briefly as follows:
