Who we are


The international AWG organization

The Association of Women Geoscientists is an international organization that is “devoted to enhancing the quality and level of participation of women in geosciences and to introduce girls and young women to geoscience careers“. We are an official chapter and we are currently the only chapter in the northeast USA.

Membership in the Penn State Chapter 

While our meetings and events are open to anyone that is interested, we strongly encourage people to become an official member of the AWG. Membership dues are not terribly expensive and there is usually a discount if you sign up at a GSA or AGU meeting.
