Graduate Student Fellowship Program

The SEGF Graduate Student Fellowship (GSF) Program provides fellowships to students who intend to pursue a course of study in economic geology leading to a Professional Master's, Master of Science (M.Sc.) and/or Ph.D. degree, with preference given to those who will be entering graduate school following completion of a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree, or equivalent. A total of US$150,000 has been awarded to 20 students and CAN$30,000 has been awarded to five students who are enrolled in, or will be entering, graduate school in 2016. This is one of the Foundation's three core student programs "to encourage and develop a new generation of economic geologists".

The GSF Program is supported by major grants from Anglo American, Barrick Gold Corporation, Bear Creek Mining Corporation, Coeur Mining, Newmont Mining Corporation, Pan American Silver Corp., Regulus Resources, Inc., and, an Individual Anonymous Donor. The SEG Canadian Foundation (SEGCF) continues to significantly contribute to this program.
