New Named Grant Established
A new named grant has been established by the AAPG Foundation to recognize a qualified and deserving student whose project uniquely characterizes the nature of outstanding student research.
The new Grants-in-Aid Committee Grant will be used to financially help a deserving geosciences graduate student complete his/her field research work.
Trustee Associate and Grants-in-Aid Committee chair Pete MacKenzie contributed the initial amount needed to establish the Grants-in-Aid Committee Grant.
Additional contributions to the fund are needed, however, and can be made to AAPG Foundation, P.O. Box 979, Tulsa, Okla. 74101, or online at http://foundation.aapg.org/contribute.cfm.
A list of this year’s Grants-in-Aid recipients can be found on the Foundation Web site at http://foundation.aapg.org/gia/current_recipients.cfm.
Marta S. Weeks has done it again.
Weeks, who already provided funding for four AAPG Digital Products University Subscriptions, has now provided funding to endow a fifth school – this time for Columbia University in New York City, in memory of L. Austin Weeks.
Currently 31 universities are AAPG Foundation recipients of digital products subscriptions, which provide students and faculty at each university access to the entire AAPG digital collection.
That includes over 600,000 pages of maps and geological information from AAPG’s digital library.
Two new members of the AAPG Foundation Trustee Associates have been announced. They are:
- Peter Dea, independent, Golden, Colo.
- Jeff Rayner, independent, Carpenteria, Calif.
Their joining brings the Trustee Associates number to 263
