Established in 1970, the CSEG Scholarship Trust Fund awards annual scholarships to deserving geophysics students from universities across Canada. These scholarships are funded primarily through generous corporate and individual donations, and also through interest generated by the memorial trust fund for Rob Shugg. In order to qualify for an award, students must be enrolled at a Canadian university in an academic program leading to an exploration geophysics career in industry, teaching or research. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic performance, financial need, interest in geophysics and extra-curricular activities.

In 2012 the Foundation introduced a new scholarship in response to the emergence of geoscience technology programs across the country. To be eligible, students must be enrolled full-time at an accredited educational institution in Canada leading to a degree in geoscience technology (oil and gas, mining, etc.). Also, in 2013, the Foundation introduced new university entrance scholarships, aimed at high school students. One scholarship is for students who are planning on pursuing a science-based post-secondary education and the other is designated for the children of CSEG members.
