The purpose of the AAPG Foundation Grants-in-Aid program is to foster research in the geosciences. Grants are made to provide financial assistance to graduate students (currently enrolled in Masters or Ph.D. programs) whose thesis research has application to the search for and development of petroleum and energy-mineral resources, and/or to related environmental geology issues. If you are unclear about any application guidelines, please contact Program Coordinator, April Stuart at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Once a reference has submitted their opinion or endorsement online, you will receive an confirmation email that a reference was received by AAPG Foundation online system. Please ensure that the email address you provide for each person is a working email address. Please inform these references that they will be asked to submit an opinion or endorsement online, and that AAPG will provide them via email with the necessary password and Web page address. Your application will NOT be considered complete until your references submit that information.
* Please note, periodically universities and/or institutions block these notification emails, mistaking them for spam. We encourage you to suggest to the listed references to add email@example.com to their address book/safe list in order to ensure they receive communication regarding your application prior to you completing the Confirmation step. The listed references have until Saturday, February 20, 2016 to submit their endorsement.
