We are a team of 5 students and one professor from the Simon Bolivar University trying to go to the AAPG’s (American Association of Petroleum Geologists) Imperial Barrel Award Program (IBA) Semifinals.

The AAPG’s IBA is an annual competition for geoscience graduate students from universities around the world. In Latin America the competition is divided in 2 rounds: a Virtual Round, in which 24 teams participate, and the Regional Semifinals. In the first round, the 24 teams are divided in 4 groups, and only the winner of each group reaches the Semifinals. All this information can be confirmed in this link: IBA Latin America & Caribbean Region

 This year, the Simon Bolivar University (USB) won the first place in our group and now we’re going to Bogotá, Colombia to compete for a place in the Worldwide Competition. Normally the AAPG can afford all the plane tickets and meals, but this year our advisor doesn’t has his plane ticket and the other members of the team doesn’t have all the meals included.

Due to the severe political and economic crisis that our country, Venezuela, is facing right now, it is very difficult for us to get the money needed for our professor and our extra meals. We want him to go because we are a team as a whole.

We are asking for your help o the whole team can travel and represent our University and Venezuela at the IBA 2018.
