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. We will accept only one proposal from an individual principal investigator (professor or faculty advisor), although we will accept more than one proposal from a single university if authored by different principal investigators. Although EDMAP awards support student mapping in the field, the student's faculty advisor must write the proposal. All applications must be submitted through Grants.gov.
The primary objective of the STATEMAP component of the NCGMP is to establish the geologic framework of areas determined to be vital to the economic, social, or scientific welfare of individual States. The State geologist determines mapping priorities in consultation with a multi-representational State Mapping Advisory Committee. We will accept only one proposal from each State each fiscal year. Proposals may contain a number of geologic mapping projects and may include one compilation or digitization project, or all projects may be for new mapping if the State chooses. All applications must be submitted through Grants.gov.
