The CSPG Educational Trust Fund (ETF) is a Registered Charity with the Canada Revenue Agency that raises money for an endowment fund to support programs that advance petroleum geoscientific education. The slogan “Geoscientists for our Future” represents the purpose of the ETF: ensuring that there are well-educated and skilled petroleum geoscientists for the future.
The CSPG Educational Trust Fund inspires individuals to pursue a career in petroleum geoscience by funding innovative, and informative educational programs.
