Thought you or one of your students might be interested in this and I don't have an e-mail for you. Tim was an awesome guy and his wife posted this on her Facebook page. Feel free to share info.

Hope to run into you at the Birkie.

Hey Geo-Friends and the Geo-Friendly! A new research fellowship in Tim's name at RMBL!
Timothy F. Wawrzyniec Fellowship
The Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory (RMBL) will be awarding $5,000 in support of geologically-oriented research conducted through RMBL in 2016 for one or more scientists working at the postdoctoral level or higher. Scientists with an RMBL-approved research plan are eligible to apply for direct support of research. Additionally, scientists considering working at RMBL, but who do not have an approved research plan, can request travel funds for an exploratory visit to RMBL.
Fellowship Applicants who have approved research plans, or will be submitting a new research plan, should use the general fellowship application (which will be current by Friday, Jan. 8th) found at The deadline for applying for RMBL Fellowships is Feb. 15.
For new scientists, the deadline for new research plans is Feb. 1. You can find more information about working at RMBL at "", or by contacting RMBL Science Director, Jennifer Reithel (
If you do not have an approved research plan but are interested in a travel grant to explore working at RMBL, by Feb. 15th please send a copy of your resume along with a cover letter that provides a bit of information about where you are in your career, your research interests, how RMBL could potentially fit into your research/education goals, any logistical considerations involved in working at RMBL that you would like to explore, and a budget.

Timothy F. Wawrzyniec was a well-known U.S. geologist, entrepreneur, and former faculty member at the University of Texas, University of New Mexico, and Western State Colorado University. Much of Tim’s early research focused on the structural geology and Laramide tectonic history of the Rocky Mountains. The Elk Mountains, and RMBL, forever remained near and dear to his heart. Tim’s life and career were tragically cut short by brain cancer in November 2014.

Thanks Jerritt, I've been to RMBL, just for a day, and even looked at the geology there just a bit. I'm up to my eye balls in research and everything else so I can't take advantage, but I did pass it along to a colleague. Yes, see you at the Birkie.
