The AAPG Foundation is looking for innovative and inspiring educators who have shown outstanding academic leadership and work to inspire the future of geoscience. The honor comes with a $6,000 prize from the AAPG Foundation, an expense paid trip to the next Annual Convention & Exhibition in Salt Lake City and a commemorative plaque.
Nominees will be evaluated on the content of their coursework and their ability to motivate students to pursue additional geologic studies. Courses will be evaluated on depth and breadth of concepts (resource origin, discovery, processing, usage and reclamation), creativity of presentation and balanced treatment of information regarding societal need, cost and environmental impacts..
Nominations are due by March 15.
