Description

Earth Sciences graduate student Lindsey Hernandez has received a 2019 Tinker Foundation Field Research Grant through OSU Center for Latin American Studies! Along with this award, she recently gave a talk on 2/27/2020 in Enarson Classroom Building about “Volcanic Hazard Assessment in Guatemala: Understanding magma plumbing systems using petrologic methods” to share her research experience.

The Tinker Foundation’s Field Research Grants Program is designed to provide budding scholars with a first-hand experience of their region of study, regardless of academic discipline.  The grants provide graduate students with funds for travel to and within Latin America to conduct pre-dissertation research.  These awards allow students to acquire a comprehensive knowledge of language and culture, familiarize themselves with information sources relevant to their studies, conduct pilot studies and preliminary investigations, and develop contacts with scholars and institutions in their respective fields.

Congratulations Lindsey!
