The application deadline is quickly approaching for this year’s AAPG Foundation’s Grants-in-Aid Program: applications must be received by Jan. 31.
This year the program will be providing $203,000 to the highest quality master’s and Ph.D. student’s research projects from throughout the world. In addition to domestic students, GIAs in past years have been awarded to graduate students from Africa, Australia, Cameroon, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Lithuania, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Slovakia and the United Kingdom.
Students do not need to be AAPG members to apply.
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 can apply online at foundation.aapg.org/gia/index.cfm.
Also, the Named Grants program is a special endowed segment of the Grants-in-Aid program, and students can look online (foundation.aapg.org/gia/names.cfm) for grants restricted to their specific university or area of research.
