Gifts Made to Help Students
Three new gifts have been made to benefit geoscience students through the AAPG Foundation’s Digital Products University Alumni Fund.
The Alumni program, a special endowed segment of the AAPG Foundation Digital Products Fund, provides a subscription fee for students at a specific school to have uninterrupted access to the entire AAPG Digital Library -- over 500,000 pages of international, national and regional libraries of petroleum and geology and geophyics information.
The gifts provide endowments for:
- Tulane University, provided by Freeport-McMoRan, in memory of the late Kent McWilliams.
- Princeton University, provided by Lawrence W. Funkhouser, AAPG Foundation Trustee Emeritus, in memory of Hollis Hedberg.
- Oberlin College, also provided by Funkhouser.
Funkhouser also provided the gift for the Lawrence W. Funkhouser Named Grant, which provides an annual $1,000 Grant-in-Aid for a student at Stanford University.
In other Foundation news, the AAPG Eastern Section has provided funding for an annual $500 Grant-in-Aid to be awarded to a graduate student studying petroleum geology in the AAPG Eastern Section Region.
