The SEG Stewart R. Wallace Fund
Student Chapter Grants for Field-Based Education

Funding Announcement for 2017, Round II

Application Deadline: October 31, 2017

Student Chapter funding is made available by the SEG Stewart R. Wallace Fund. Wallace, who served as SEG President in 1992, is well known in the exploration community, especially for his role in the discovery of molybdenum at what became the Climax and Henderson mines. Active SEG Student Chapters may submit requests for funding of field-based educational activities.

In order for a chapter funding application to be accepted, the SEG Student Chapter:

Failure to meet the above, as well as other eligibility requirements outlined in the operations guidelines, may compromise the eligibility of your funding application!

Applications that are organized and detailed may be successful in receiving up to US$1,500 (possibly more, for exceptional applications). The 2017 budget is comparable to 2016. Given the increased numbers of chapters there will be greater competition for funds. The criteria used by the Student Affairs Committee (SAC) in assessing the applications are clearly stated on the funding guidelines and application. For clarity, the criteria will include the technical quality of the application; the technical justification for, leadership of, and deliverables expected from the field trip. Evidence of good planning and a realistic budget is expected. Details of efforts to source other funds are also important, as is a clear explanation as to why the SEG funds are needed, and what they will be used for. The SAC will also take particular note of applications that involve cooperation between chapters and which include a spread of student, academic, and industry participants.

Prompt and complete applications are appreciated.
