SEG Student Chapter Excellence Program

The Student Chapter Excellence Program recognizes existing SEG Student Chapters for their engagement.

Congratulations to our 2017 Best Student Chapter, AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow, Poland!

For your opportunity to win the 2018 SEG Best Student Chapter Award, complete the Student Chapter Report and Best Student Chapter Application between 1 January and 30 March at seg.org/apply.

Only the Student Chapter Reports with applications submitted by 30 March 2018 will be considered for the "Best Student Chapter Award", a $5,000 travel grant for the winning Faculty Advisor and one student member to attend the SEG 2019 Annual Meeting.

Every Student Chapter must submit a Student Chapter Report to remain active and qualify for Base level. The information provided in the Student Chapter Report and the Best Student Chapter Application will be used to determine the 2018 Student Chapter ranking (Ridge, Summit, and Best). All submitted activities must have taken place between 1 January 2017 and 31 December 2017. Reports submitted after the deadline will automatically be awarded base level.

Student Chapters who do not submit the Student Chapter Report will be placed on inactive status. Once placed on inactive status, the Chapter will no longer receive The Leading Edge magazine and student opportunity to be selected for SEG travel grants will also be reduced.
