American Institute of Professional Geologists, Student Chapter

Program Overview / Impact

The UC Davis AIPG, American Institute of Professional Geologists, student chapter is a club established to connect students, both undergraduate and graduate with professionals in the geosciences. This student organization promotes networking, scholarship opportunities, educational events and public outreach. The AIPG Foundation supports student chapters like the one at UC Davis so students can be offered opportunities to attend educational programs, have professional guests speak at meetings providing their personal experience and research in the field and offer field trips to educationally significant geological sites. This student chapter strives to build a geoscience community that is competent, ethical and supportive so it may be a reliable resource for students. This club is sponsored by the nationally accredited professional organization of AIPG.

How to Get Involved

Meetings occur on a monthly basis and are free to attend. These meetings are held in a room dedicated to the AIPG student chapter which we invite and welcome various majors to attend professional presentations in the geoscience field or those who have worked in geologically significant research. To become a student member online registration is required and FREE in order to attend field trips, events and potentially receive scholarships through AIPG funded programs. Only by becoming a member can you enjoy these benefits and more. You do not need to be a geoscience major to become a member. The most important perk is the opportunity to network with professionals in the geoscience field of their interest.
