Who We’ve Helped

Scott Meek AAPG GIA 2018 Field Picture

These funds are granted annually thanks to our Named Grants, most of which bear the names of many generous supporters of the AAPG Foundation. These grants are given to provide financial assistance to graduate students (currently enrolled in master's and doctorate 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.

In 2019, the Grants-in-Aid program awarded 114 graduate students across the world a total of $285,500 in geoscience research funds.
