Pewe Award

About the Troy Péwé Award

The Péwé fund was established in 2019 by Ellen Wohl. The purpose of the Fund is to support research grants to graduate students in the field of periglacial geology through the Quaternary Geology and Geomorphology Division (QG&G). In the event there are not any applications focused on periglacial geology, the award may go to a student doing research in any area of Quaternary geology or geomorphology. Annual awards will be made by the QG&G Division of the Geological Society of America (GSA), through a process determined by the QG&G Division's Management Board in consultation with GSA. The first award was given in 2023.

How to apply for the Péwé Award

Applications are done via the student research grant program run by GSA. Any research grant application that has “Quaternary Geology and Geomorphology” selected as the General Field of Research Project will be automatically eligible for consideration for our awards.  PLEASE NOTE that a single application can be simultaneously considered for multiple awards.


Applications are due February 1 of each year.
