GSA Awards

David I. Groves Award 
A medal award for the best paper published in the Australian Journal of Earth Sciences by a young author, who must be the senior author: the eligibility criterion is that the senior author, at the time of submission, must have had a first degree in any relevant science for less than six years (i.e. the emphasis is on 'young' in experience, rather than young in age). The award may be made annually.
