About the Program

The overarching goal of the AAPG Foundation’s Grants-in-Aid program is to promote research in the geosciences. Grants are made to provide financial assistance to graduate students (currently enrolled in Masters or Ph.D. programs) whose thesis research has application to the search for and development of petroleum and energy-mineral resources and/or to related environmental geology issues.

Students need your support now more than ever. The Grants-in-Aid program has become increasingly popular and we are only able to award about 20% of the hopefuls who apply. Creating a named grant is a very special a way to give a gift that keeps on giving, while simultaneously honoring a donor or someone of your choosing.

To establish a grant-in-aid for a student, contact the Foundation office toll free at 1-855-302-2743. A gift of $25,000 will ensure an annual grant of $1,000 for years to come.
