Sponsoring the GCSSEPM
Why sponsor the GCSSEPM Foundation?
Generous grants from our sponsors help keep the registration fees for our research conferences to a minimum, enabling more geoscientists to attend. Through corporate sponsorship we are also directly involved in geoscience research—including support of the geological/geophysical staff at various universities and graduate student research projects. Our graduate student support is directed specifically to those projects that are developing advanced solutions to the practical problems of exploration, production, and development geology. Please accept an invitation from the GCSSEPM Foundation to become a corporate sponsor, enabling us to continue and expand these programs.
