The American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) is now offering
scholarships for a limited number of places to cover full fees of up to
$1000. Please seek financial assistance from your school then apply for
the scholarship amount to equal the cost of the course when combined
with your school system support. (Students will have to purchase a

This 15 week course was developed and tested by Dr. Rebecca Dodge and Mark Carpenter at AGI. The course will be offered through a partnership with Illinois Institute of Technology. It provides an excellent background for anyone teaching ESS out of field or wanting to broaden existing ESS content knowledge. Furthermore, participants are strongly encouraged to share their ideas about the course design and become part of AGI's piloting process. Those who complete the course will receive three CEUs from IIT. They will also gain access to valuable AGI video resources for use in their classroom.
The deadline for applications is July 18th, 2016. Successful applicants will be notified by July 20th, 2016.
