SEGF Graduate Student Fellowship Awards

The SEGF Graduate Student Fellowship 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$200,000 has been awarded to 29 students and CAN$30,000 has been awarded to six students who are enrolled in, or will be entering, graduate school in 2013. This is one of the Foundation’s three core student programs "to encourage and develop a new generation of economic geologists". The SEGF Graduate Student Fellowship Program is supported by major grants from AngloGold Ashanti Limited, Barrick Gold Corporation, Gold Fields Exploration Inc., and Newmont Mining Corporation. The SEGCF (SEG Canadian Foundation) continues to significantly contribute to this program.
