The APGO Education Foundation: A new charitable foundation for the geosciences
The APGO Education Foundation ("Ed Fdn") is a new charitable Foundation for the geosciences. Its mission is to provide financial and other support to:
• Promote a greater public understanding of geoscience;
• Support the individuals who study geoscience; and
• Support the practice of professional geoscience.
Founded by Dr. Bill Pearson, P.Geo, APGO's first president, the Ed Fdn will be launching a Scholarship and Bursary program in early 2016. Scholarships will support post-secondary students in the 3rd year of a geoscience study program at an Ontario university. Bursaries will support immigrants to Canada who are internationally-trained geoscientists and have demonstrated financial need for completion of licensure procedures for registration as a professional geoscientist in Ontario.
