Supports a summer grant-in-aid for student(s) research on the geology and geophysics of western Montana and adjacent areas being conducted at the IU Judson Mead Geologic Field Station. Preference will be given to students who will reside, in part, at the Field Station, where they will be provided free room and board. All publications resulting from the work must acknowledge the Charles J. Vitaliano endowment as the source of the grant-in-aid, and grant recipients must use the Field Station as their address on their publications.
The Charles J. Vitaliano Grant-In-Aid is in honor of Dr. Charles J. Vitaliano, a former member of our department and the Judson Mead Geologic Field Station. It is meant to recognize his important contributions to the creation of the teaching and research programs at the Field Station, as well as his undying love for the field of geology.
