The GSA Foundation is excited to announce the new Petroleum Geoscientists Fund for Undergraduate Field Experience and Research! This fund is unique because it was initiated and started by a group of industry career geoscientists and underscores the value of undergraduate field experience as realized by them. It is also one of a small number of sources of field camp financial support.
Did you know?
Undergraduate field experience is considered by professionals and employers to be a critical geoscience training experience, and yet…
- Only 40% of 2016 geoscience bachelor’s degree candidates participated in field camp; attendance continues to decrease.
- Rising field camp costs are increasingly prohibitive to students.
- Corporate funding for field camp scholarships and student research has dramatically shrunk in the last 5 years.
YOU can help support the undergraduate field experience by becoming part of the Petroleum Geoscientists Fund for Undergraduate Field Experience and Research effort.
