SEG/Chevron Student Leadership Symposium

The SEG/Chevron Student Leadership Symposium (SLS) offers travel grants to students who are currently active officers of an SEG Student Chapter. Students receiving the SLS travel grant award will participate in a two-day focused leadership program. Travel grants will cover the expenses for travel, lodging, and registration to SEG's Annual Meeting.

The 2014 SLS will be held 25-26 October at the 2014 SEG Annual Meeting in Denver CO, USA.

What is the SEG/Chevron Student Leadership Symposium?

This focused program of leadership skills development will include an address by the SEG President, best practice presentations from selected Student Chapters, professional leadership coaching, an organized team building activity, and a Strategic Problem Solving Session with the SEG Executive Committee. Only fifty student leaders, representative of SEG's worldwide network of Student Chapters, will be selected to attend.

The 2014 SLS will be held 25-26 October at the 2014 SEG Annual Meeting in Denver CO, USA.

"This program brought together a group of students who have diverse technical knowledge and different ideas and perspectives but the same goal of being sharp and successful in the field of study and career."
