The Student member of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists attends college and is studying geology or a similar field generally associated with geosciences at a college of acceptable academic standards. Any college student meeting this criteria is eligible for membership in the AAPG and is encouraged to join due to the many benefits an early start in the Association brings to their career.

Students are encouraged to join an AAPG Student Chapter if one is available at their school. The AAPG Student Chapter program is made up of collegiate groups of geoscience students. It is one of the world's foremost co-education programs within the geoscience sector and have close to 300 chapters throughout the world. 

An AAPG student chapter provides students the opportunity to develop leadership skills, develop a professional network of colleagues and friends, and serves as a place to meet industry representatives to help the geoscience student hone their interest and focus for their career path.

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 completing the application process or 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.
