About the APGO Education Foundation
To provide financial and other support to promote a greater understanding of the profession of geoscience, support the individuals who study geoscience, and support the practise of professional geoscience.
The foundation accomplishes this mission by:
- Providing scholarships to post-secondary students for the study of geoscience in a degree program;
- Providing bursaries to 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; and
- Holding lectures, presentations and conferences on geoscience to enhance the knowledge of the general public.
