Student Chapters Receive Honors
Student chapters from the University of Oklahoma and the University of Indonesia in Jakarta were honored with Outstanding Student Chapter Awards during the annual convention in Long Beach.
For the tenth year, program sponsor Schlumberger presented two $1,000 scholarships to the schools in recognition of their honor -- OU being the outstanding U.S.-based student chapter, and the University of Indonesia as the outstanding international chapter.
Awards are presented yearly at the AAPG Annual Convention. Student chapter requirements for selection of awards are maintenance of student AAPG memberships, active AAPG faculty sponsor and participation in Earth Science Week, field trips, meetings and special community events.
“Schlumberger is committed to working with universities who continue to excel with their geological programs,” said Rod Nelson, vice president of innovation and collaboration for Schlumberger, as he made the award presentation. “We are pleased to support AAPG with its student development programs, for these students will one day be a valuable part of our oil and gas industry.”
