The AGeS Program

The AGeS Program is a collaborative strategy for supporting geochronology needs. The goals of AGeS are to:

  • Broaden access to geochronology
  • Educate users of geochronology data
  • Promote synergistic science by fostering new relationships between labs, students, and scientists in different disciplines
  • Provide strategic, high-quality, scientifically-valuable geochronology data for projects in which both users and producers of the data are intellectually engaged

The AGeS program accomplishes these goals by providing opportunities for graduate students to apply for up to $10k to visit a host lab for a week or more to acquire and interpret geochronology data while being mentored by geochronologists on a project of joint interest.

Some AGeS numbers, as of mid-2021:

  • 77 AGeS awards made to graduate students
  • 62 AGeS labs participating in the program
  • >100 AGeS geochronologist mentors
  • 6 proposal cycles: 3 during AGeS1, 3 during AGeS2
  • 331 submitted student proposals, each one representing new interactions between students and labs

The AGeS program is currently supported by National Science Foundation awards EAR-1759200, -1759353, -1759201 to R.M. Flowers (CU-Boulder), J.R. Arrowsmith (ASU), and V. McConnell (GSA).
