AAPG considers student member participation a vital part of our association. The Student Chapters Program plays a critical role by providing an avenue where undergraduate and graduate geology students can engage in meaningful networking opportunities, and connect with professionals in geological careers, both inside and outside of academia.

The Student Chapter Program is a wonderful way for student members and their advisors to build camaraderie around a shared passion, and to multiply knowledge and field experiences among a group in a casual, fun setting. Those connections made are of benefit to the chapters’ universities, to the students, to the AAPG and to the geologic profession as a whole.

Keeping Your Chapter Active

It only takes a few simple steps to assure the success of your chapter:

  • Set specific and realistic goals.
  • Hold meetings regularly.
  • Tell us what your chapter is doing. Send us your student chapter annual report, which is due 1 February each year, to [email protected].

Student Chapter Funding Opportunities
L. Austin Weeks Undergraduate Grant Program

The AAPG Foundation's L. Austin Weeks (LAW) Undergraduate Grant program annually awards deserving undergraduate level geoscience students and student-led geoscience associations (student chapters, associations and clubs) with $500 grants.

These grants are intended to support the educational endeavors of undergraduate geoscience students and their student-led organizations. Thanks to generous contributors, including L. Austin Weeks and Marta Weeks-Wulf, the Foundation will grant funds to geoscience students and student organizations.
