Schlumberger announced its contribution of five scholarships to the American Association of Petroleum Geologists’ (AAPG) Outstanding Student Chapter Awards. Two universities were selected as the 2013 chapter winners and four additional universities were awarded honorable mention student chapter scholarships.

Colorado School of Mines in Golden, Colorado was the top award recipient among United States–based chapters, and the Universitas Indonesia in Jakarta was honored as the outstanding international chapter. Honorable mentions were awarded to two universities in the United States, which included the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Utah, and Wichita State University in Wichita, Kansas. Additional honorable mentions were awarded to the Universitas Sriwijaya in Palembang, Indonesia, and Eotvos Lorand University in Budapest, Hungary.

“Schlumberger is committed to working with students and universities who continue to excel their geological programs,” said Maurice Nessim, president, PetroTechnical Services, Schlumberger. “This is our sixteenth year to sponsor the scholarships for the AAPG Outstanding Student Chapter Awards, and we are honored to support AAPG with its development programs aimed to promote academic and professional opportunities, specifically engaging students in the geosciences.”

Currently, AAPG has 277 chapters worldwide. Student chapter requirements for selection of awards are maintenance of student AAPG memberships, active AAPG faculty sponsor, participation in the Geosciences Institute’s Earth Science Week or other scientific outreach programs, field trips, meetings and special community events, and the use of social media to promote their chapter.
