Schlumberger Excellence in Education Development

Schlumberger Excellence in Education Development (SEED) is our educational program focusing on communities where Schlumberger people live and work. Through SEED, Schlumberger trains employees, retirees, volunteers, and educators around the world to share their passion for leaning and science with students. A hands-on program that relies on the scientific and technological expertise of our employee volunteers, SEED focuses on STEM topics through camps, workshops, and classroom visits. The primary topics of focus are robotics, computer science, and energy education.

HSE for Youth

The Schlumberger HSE for Youth program mobilizes employees and their spouses to share their expertise within our communities. It informs and empowers young people to make responsible and safe global and individual decisions regarding health, safety, and environmental (HSE) issues. Program workshops are focused on nine health and safety topics and use a learner-centered approach. The program operates in 52 countries and workshops are held, on average, once every two days.

Faculty for the Future:
Empowering Women Scientists Around the World

The Schlumberger Foundation’s Faculty for the Future program enables women from developing economies to pursue advanced graduate studies in science and engineering subjects at top-tier universities around the world. Faculty for the Future builds on the link between science, technology, and socioeconomic development, as well as the key role education plays in realizing individual potential. By supporting higher education in this way, Schlumberger is contributing to bridging the gender gap in science and building an international community of women leaders in science who are prepared to make a difference in their home countries.

Since its launch in 2004, the Schlumberger Foundation’s Faculty for the Future program has awarded fellowships to more than 560 women in 78 countries. After completing their studies, Faculty for the Future fellows return to their home countries, where they contribute to economic, social, and technological advancement by strengthening the teaching and research faculties of their home institutions, and by taking positions in governments or the public sector, where their newly acquired technical and scientific skills can help provide evidence-based support for policy making.

In addition to enabling women to attend graduate school, Faculty for the Future hosts an annual forum for program fellows to share their experiences and fosters cooperation while debating topics of interest. Forums have taken place in Cambridge, Massachusetts; New York; Houston; London; Paris; and Abu Dhabi.
