The SEG Near Surface Research Award endowment provides research grants to support undergraduate or graduate students in engaged in near-surface geophysics research in a relevant academic program at an accredited institution. Awards are intended to offset expenses directly related to the awardee's near-surface geophysics research.

Near-surface geophysics typically involves the application of geophysical techniques to the study of subsurface targets other than oil and gas. Depths of investigation may range from less than a meter to greater than a kilometer, and applications include (but are not limited to) hydrogeologic studies, earthquake hazard assessment, geotechnical evaluation, archeological investigations, and agricultural studies.

The SEG Near-Surface Geophysics Technical Section is the founding supporter of this endowment.
