The 2023 Career Development Award winners at the 54th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference.

The Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI) is pleased to announce the recipients of this year’s Career Development Award. This award is granted to graduate students who have submitted a first-author abstract for presentation, either in-person or virtually, at the 55th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference (LPSC). The selection process involves a review of the application materials by a panel of planetary scientists. Recipients will receive financial support to help cover their expenses for participating in the hybrid conference.

This year, the LPI received applications from various countries including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, India, Italy, Ivory Coast, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

The 55th LPSC will take place at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel & Convention Center in The Woodlands, Texas. This conference offers invaluable opportunities for students to not only present their own research but also to engage with the latest findings from other researchers in their field. Additionally, students will have the chance to network with distinguished international researchers.
