EAGE student members can receive financial support from the Association in order to participate in events, successfully organize local scientific events, or to reward extraordinary achievements and top students with awards and scholarships. We recognize the following forms of financial support:

Student Event Support

EAGE appreciates new educational initiatives by and for geoscience and engineering students. As fundraising for such an initiative is a tough job, EAGE is happy to contribute. 

The EAGE Student Support Programme is sponsored by the EAGE Fund and finances Geoscience educational proposals in order to promote new and innovative ideas and up-to-date theoretical and practical knowledge of its student members. This support is available for EAGE Student Chapters and EAGE student members. 

Not only can EAGE support the organization of the initiative in fundraising, but can also financially contribute to educational proposes that aim to update theoretical and/ or practical knowledge of the local student community.
