Assistant Professor of Geology Bess Koffman has been awarded an American Association of University Women (AAUW) American Fellowship for 2021-22. Established in 1888, the American Fellowship is “AAUW’s largest fellowship program and the oldest non-institutional source of graduate funding for women in the United States,” according to its website. The fellowship will support Koffman’s research on tracing dust in Antarctica to learn about past climate.
