A key component of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) educational directives is to equip the geoscientists of the future. SEG’s student and early career programs provide essential tools and resources that prepare students and young professionals for successful academic and long-term careers in geophysics.

Our emphasis on students follows three main trajectories:

Financial Assistance

SEG offers students and emerging professionals a variety of financial assistance options designed to provide accessibility to programs, events, and career development opportunities.

Student Programs

Focused on providing students with needed tools for successful careers, SEG hosts and partners with other organizations on special programs, expositions, and symposiums to turn today’s students into tomorrow’s leaders.

Student Chapters

SEG Student Chapters open the door for students to actively participate in projects and initiatives that provide opportunities for leadership, growth, and collaborative experiences.
