Graduate level students whose thesis research has application to the search for and development of petroleum and energy-mineral resources, and/or to related environmental geology issues, are eligible to apply for the Grants-in-Aid program.
Award recipients must be enrolled in a Masters or Ph.D. program or the equivalent. Four-year degrees or B.S. with honors are not eligible for grants. Students are eligible for a grant twice in their graduate studies (Masters and Ph.D. studies combined).
Non-U.S. Applicants: The AAPG Foundation must adhere to sanctions and regulations as set forth by the U.S. Department of Treasury. If you are unsure as to whether sanctions have been placed on your country of residence, please review the list of sanctioned countries to determine if you are eligible for a Grants-in-Aid award at this time.

All applications are held confidentially by the AAPG Foundation and access is limited to the student, the Grants-in-Aid Committee and the Foundation Staff. Grantee, by submission of this application and if selected as a recipient, grants to the Foundation permission to use photographs, logos, published/printed information, and any other materials supplied by Grantee without further notice in press releases and/or other publications of the Foundation.
Grants to successful applicants are made in U.S. dollars via direct deposit or wire transfer to students living outside the U.S. Students selected to receive grants will be contacted by the AAPG Foundation concerning banking information. A grant will not be sent to a third party or a third party account.
