Industry Invests in AAPG Students

Chevron - Corporate Sponsor for Student membershipsAAPG's Corporate Sponsorship Program is an investment in you. Currently it is sponsored exclusively by Chevron. Under this program, Chevron will pay the dues of any AAPG Student member if the Student member requests that option. Additionally, the Corporate Sponsorship program will pay the dues of AAPG Members that serve as faculty advisors to Active AAPG Student Chapters.

Any AAPG Student may take advantage of this generous support from Chevron by selecting the "Yes" box on the Student member renewal form. If you do NOT elect to receive corporate sponsorship, please ensure that you are logged into the AAPG website in order to renew. Click the 'My Profile' option in the upper right after login and then choose Pay Dues from the actions heading on the profile page. New applicants are also eligible to receive sponsorship when applying as a Student.

Any Division dues are not covered by the Corporate Sponsorship Program. However, there are no dues for Student members of the Energy Minerals Division and the Division of Environmental Geoscience. These two Divisions provide information and opens up a part of the geoscience community with expertise in energy minerals, alternative energy resources and environmental concerns.
