Young Professionals Special Interest Group: Undergraduate Mapping Sponsorship


Undergraduate Mapping Sponsorship

Each year, the PESGB YP offers a grant to university students across 26 Universities nationwide completing their undergraduate mapping projects. In addition to this, we also offer the selected students one year of free membership to the PESGB. Membership brings a number of benefits which can aid the student with their first steps into a geoscience career, including: 

A monthly magazine

Receipt of and inclusion in an annual membership directory

A map of the structural elements of the North Sea

Annual training directory

Access to the members only section of the website

Monthly lectures in London and Aberdeen

Members rate registration to conferences, seminars and field trips

Reduced subscription to journals

Eligibility to attend exclusive PESGB social events 

Selection Policy

Once the PESGB YP has launched the process of sponsorship (which normally occurs in late Spring), universities are contacted by the PESGB YP and asked to select students per university. We believe that the university itself is best placed to allocate the funds to a particular student as they know the individual students and their circumstances far better than we do. The funds are intended to be received by students who will participate in an individual mapping project. To reiterate, the university will be responsible for student selection and allocation of the reward; it is intended that the money be put towards travel/transport for the project and so should be allocated to a student who would be best served by receiving the support.
