Five new endowments have been announced for the AAPG Foundation’s Digital Product University Alumni Fund.

The new gifts, which endow access to students for the entire AAPG digital library, are:

  • From Marta Weeks, a subscription for the University of Wisconsin in memory of her late father-inlaw, Lewis G. Weeks.
  • From Paul Strunk, a subscription for Kansas State University.
  • From Bruce Falkenstein, subscriptions for the University of Calgary and Oregon State University.
  • From Dan Smith, subscriptions for the University of Texas at Austin.

The Foundation’s Digital Products University Alumni Fund allows alumni to provide, with a one-time gift or bequest of $12,500, access for current students to AAPG’s digital library – over 450,000 pages of information.

In other Foundation news, the Grants-in-Aid Program recently received funding for two new Named Grants:

  • Bill Barrett has provided funding for the Barrett Family Named Grant, which will provide $500 annually to a geoscience graduate student at Kansas State University.
