To the Members of the Association of Applied Paleontological Sciences:
I wish to express my sincere gratitude for being chosen to receive the C.H. Sternberg scholarship. I am proud that you have deemed my research project worthy of financial support, especially given the strong competition for funding that exists in the natural sciences today. The support you are providing allows me to progress in my dissertation research. I think this an exciting project that will increase our understanding of the Western Interior Seaway and its fauna.
Again, thank you for this gracious award; I will keep the AAPS appraised of my research progress and I will acknowledge your financial support in my activities relating to this project.
With Sincerest Thanks,
Alan Blake Coulson
