Richard Lane Scholarship

Richard Lane Scholarship Launch

 Richard Lane (1962-2021)

A new ASEG Scholarship has been established to support Geophysics Honours and Masters Students and to commemorate the life and work of ASEG Gold Medal recipient Richard Lane. The scholarship is open to all BSc(Hons) and MSc geophysics students and consists of a grant of $5,000 to the best ranked student for the current year. Ranking will be based on a 200 word discussion, overview of geophysics project and on academic transcript. For 2021 we acknowledge and thank the initial donation and concept from Jayson Meyers and Resource Potentials Pty Ltd.

All Honours (BSc) and Masters (MSc) students with focus predominantly in exploration Geophysics are invited to apply. Closing date is 23rd July and application details and form are located here.

The scholarship will be an annual event and donations to support the continuation of this scholarship are sought from institutions, companies and individuals. Information on donations via the ASEG Research Foundation can be found at Please mark donation specifically “Richard Lane Scholarship:”
