The Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI) is pleased to announce the 20 recipients of this year’s Career Development Award. The award is given to graduate students who have submitted a first-author abstract for presentation in-person or virtually at the 54th 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 hybrid conference. This year, the LPI received applications from the Canada, France, India, United Kingdom, and United States.

The 54th LPSC will be held at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel and Convention Center in The Woodlands, Texas. The meeting provides an invaluable opportunity for students, not only to present their own research, but also to hear and see 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.
