The Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI) is pleased to announce the 13 recipients of this year’s Career Development Award.  The award is given to graduate students who have submitted a first-author abstract for presentation at the 48th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference (LPSC). The awards are based on a review of the application materials by a panel of planetary scientists, and recipients will receive funds to help cover their expenses for attending the conference. The Career Development Award is open to graduate students from the U.S. and other countries.

The 48th LPSC will be held at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel & Convention Center in The Woodlands, Texas. Approximately 2000 participants from all over the world are expected to gather for the annual meeting, which has gained the reputation of being the premiere gathering place for lunar and planetary scientists. The meeting provides an invaluable opportunity for students, not only to present their own research, but also to observe firsthand the latest-breaking results from other researchers in their field. Opportunities are also provided for students to meet and network with an international group of distinguished researchers.

Congratulations to the 2017 recipients: Kevin Cannon (Brown University); Edgard Sikko Steenstra (Vrije Universiteit); Ali Bramson (University of Arizona); Auriol Rae (Imperial College London); Mallory Kinczyk (North Carolina State University); Gerrit Budde (Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster Zur); Elise Harrington (University  of Ontario); Stephanie Quintana-Bouchey (Brown University); Vivian Sun (Brown University); Arya Bina (Western University); Christy Caudill (Western University); Josiah Lewis (Washington, University in St. Louis); and Timothy Hahn (Washington, University in St. Louis).
