We are excited to report that we’ll announce final acceptance decisions for the 2018 DIG Field School next week! Thank you to all who applied, and thank you for your patience in waiting to hear back on your status.
This year we received 94 applications for 35 open spots. We received applications from 24 different states—as well Canada, Algeria, and Turkey—and were extremely impressed by the quality of the applications and the diversity of teaching backgrounds and experiences. Unfortunately we can only accommodate a small portion of the applications we receive, so if you are not accepted please consider applying again!
The DIG is a part of a larger field research project that Dr. Greg Wilson leads every summer, and includes a dynamic group of researchers from a number of institutions. We are gearing up for a very busy summer, and will return to a number of macrofossil sites discovered last year (including some promising dinosaur specimens!), collect as much fossiliferous sediment as we possibly can, and continue a detailed geological survey of our research area. We look forward to sharing the results of our research and the field school in the near future!
