Student membership and your research

24 March, 2022

Students currently working on their end of years research projects or dissertation
have a valuable tool available to them – EAGE Student Membership! You may know
EAGE from it’s conferences and workshops, but did you know student memberships
provide access to a wealth of peer-reviewed knowledge?

Your studies and membership support

EarthDoc is EAGE’s database of proceedings and journal publications, providing
members with tens of thousands of titles to cross reference, best practices and
scientific advancements.

As we know how important access to information is, EAGE students members have
full access to proceedings, as well as an EAGE journal of their choice. This is also
available for students enrolled in the membership grants programme – made possible
by the EAGE Student Fund.

You can learn more about how EAGE membership can work for you at

Students, EAGE 2022 and the ESF

10 March 2022

The EAGE Annual Conference & Exhibition in June is one of the highlights of the year. Not only
for professionals, but also students. After all, for many the EAGE annual meetings are a first
taste of what international conferences and exhibitions are like.

The EAGE Student Fund plays a key role in making this opportunity available to students.
The activities at the Annual, such as the EAGE GeoQuiz, student chapter meetings and Laurie
Dake Challenge
finals are all the product of our mission to help students bridge the gap between
their studies and the start of their careers.

Supporting the EAGE Student Fund

In order to make our work possible, we rely on donations from companies as well as the EAGE
community. Since the inception of our organization, we’ve been able to help thousands of
students from dozens of countries.

If you want to support the future of geoscience and engineering, please consider donating to the
EAGE Student Fund today. Individuals can do so directly. If you represent a company, please reach
out to us to learn more about our opportunities for corporate support of our mission.

Thank you very much for you interests and donations in advance.

Students Conference Uppsala

9 February 2022

Student-led conferences are back! On 3 and 4 May, the EAGE Student Chapter in
Uppsala, Sweden is leading the organization of the YP and Student Meeting. Today’s
blog post is therefore dedicated to this upcoming meeting focussing on the energy
transition and career advancement.

Energy transition: A change driven by young professionals

We are living in the era of the energy transition and YPs are and will play a major role
in this challenging task. It is important to educate and direct research towards green
and sustainable energy, and raw materials as means of securing our energy supply and

YPs will be part of the technology transfer and exchange to achieve optimal methodology
and solutions to meet the energy needs in the following decade. We want to tackle topics
such as waste and energy management, carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS),
geothermal and thermal energy, raw materials and all environmental aspects and issues
raised during the energy transition and future energy consumption.

Focusing mainly on the latest developments and cutting-edge solutions in northern Europe,
the event will be hosted by Uppsala University, Department of Earth Sciences during
3 and 4 May 2022. We invite students and YPs from the region and beyond to present their
ideas and works on energy transition topics in the format of a Rapid-Fire talk*. Requirement
for the participation is a short abstract (max. 300 words) including title, authors and
affiliations and key words.

Welcome to Uppsala!

2022 Student Chapter activites

1 February

A cornerstone of the activities the EAGE Student Fund supports are related to
EAGE Student Chapters. Student Chapters can be established by students
themselves and are affiliated to the university they are enrolled at. Doing so comes
with a range of interesting benefits, only available for student chapters.

Student chapter activities in 2022

Student Chapters will have the opportunity to connect with EAGE – and each other –
through our Student e-Summits. The e-Summits will be organized four times per year
and will provide a platform for student chapter interaction.

Student Chapters renewing before 1 March have the opportunity to join our
Online Geoquiz, available only to student chapter teams.

We also provide support for grass root up student activities undertaken by our student
chapters. This could be financial support for your meeting, or visibility.

Finally, student chapters will have up to 15 membership to allocate annually to those
member of their chapter – a great way to secure your EAGE renewal!

How to apply

You should check whether your university has a student chapter first. An overview is
of this is available here. If your university doesn’t have an (active) chapter, you can
establish one today

Become an ESF ambassador this December

23 November 2021

The EAGE Student Fund relies on donations from the geoscience
community to keep out activities going. This December, we’re therefore
actively looking for end of year donations to help us advance our mission!

In order to do so, we are looking for a number of ambassadors keen to
support our end of year giving drive.

Student Fund ambassadors

During our Month of Giving, ambassadors act the engine behind our
campaign by supporting in one (or more) of the following ways:

  • become a matching giver. This means the ambassador matches each
    donation up to a certain amount – a great incentive to get new donors
  • set fundraiser challenges. Help us reach certain fundraising
    landmarks by setting a challenge accompanied by an additional
    donation. Whether it is donations within a specific time frame,
    number of countries or total number of donations, all challenges are
  • spread the word within your organization. Whether you work for a
    large energy company or small university department, your
    contributions to inform people about our donation drive matter! If
    you’d be keen to help us reach a wider audience, we’ve got material
    for you to use.

Whether it is as a matched giver, fundraiser challenger or as a company
rep, if you care about the future of students we’d like to hear from you.
Get in touch on by Monday 29 Nov and become
one of our 2021 ambassadors
