The SEPM Foundation has a student grant program entitled SEPM Student Participation Grants. These grants provide travel funds for students that have abstracts accepted to the SEPM Student Poster Awards Session at the AAPG ACE meeting to attend the SEPM Annual Meeting which is held at the same meeting. The purpose of the program is to encourage students to discover the spectrum of science presented at the Annual Meetings and to begin expanding their professional network.
Any student may apply for travel funding by submitting their abstract (the student must be the first author and must be the presenter) to the SEPM Student Awards Poster Session during the abstract submission process for the AAPG ACE/SEPM Annual Meeting. Awardees will be chosen by the session chairs based on the quality of the abstract. Additionally student presentations in this session compete for Outstanding Student Presentation Awards, which are $500 cash awards given to the top three presenters as determined by an SEPM judging committee.
