The AGU Biogeosciences Section is seeking gifts from members and friends like you to endow their first Section Award. The Sulzman Award for Excellence in Education and Mentoring recognizes AGU members who have sustained an active research career in a field related to Biogeosciences, while excelling as teachers and serving as role models for the next generation of female scientists. This new award acknowledges the importance of female mentors in enhancing gender balance in physical science career paths. The award is being endowed to honor Elizabeth Sulzman, an isotope biogeochemist and soil scientist whose enthusiasm for teaching awed many undergraduates at Oregon State University. Please donate $50, $100, or whatever you can afford to this award so we can meet the target endowment of $25,000. Nominations for the Award will be accepted starting in 2013.
