The Educational Component of the National Cooperative Geologic Mapping Program: The primary objective of the EDMAP component of the NCGMP is to train the next generation of geologic mappers. To do this NCGMP provides funds for graduate and selected undergraduate students in academic research projects that involve geologic mapping as a major component. Through these cooperative agreements NCGMP hopes to expand the research and educational capacity of academic programs that teach earth science students the techniques of geologic mapping and field data analysis. Another important goal is to increase the level of communication between the Nations geologic surveys (both State Geological Surveys and the USGS) and geologic mappers in the academic community. We hope that this improved communication will have two results: 1) that the academic mapping community will learn more about the societal needs that drive geologic mapping projects at the USGS and State Geologic Surveys, and 2) more geologic maps produced in academia will eventually be made available to the public.

Additional Information on Eligibility
U.S. accredited university Geoscience or related Departments are eligible for EDMAP funds. University professors must write and submit the proposals. EDMAP cooperative agreements are intended to fund students doing geologic mapping in the field. While it is proper for the professors advisors to ask for some logistical support so that they may be with their student(s) in the field for a credible amount of time, the bulk of the award is intended to support the students mapping efforts. EDMAP cooperative agreements do not support faculty salaries. Masters and Doctoral students of Geoscience or related Departments at accredited United States colleges and universities are eligible applicants to the EDMAP Program. In addition, qualified undergraduate Juniors and Seniors are also eligible. These undergraduates should have received some basic mineralogy, petrology and structural geology training prior to the time they will do the geologic mapping proposed in this proposal.
