Three students from the Department of Geosciences in the College of Sciences and Mathematics (COSAM) have received highly competitive grants from the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) Foundation Grants-in-Aid Program.

“Students use these grants to help them gain important geological field and analytical experience,” explained Ashraf Uddin, professor of geosciences. “I am proud of these three successful Auburn University students who won AAPG Grants-in-Aid In 2019. Two of the students received the maximum grant of $3,000 and the other student received $2,000.”

The students are:

  • Sharif Mustaque, Merrill W. Haas Memorial Grant
  • Jasmin Naher, SEAPEX (Southeast Asia Petroleum Exploration Society) Grant
  • Jacob Thompson, Grants-in-Aid General Fund

The American Association of Petroleum Geologists is the world's largest professional organization of petroleum geoscientists. Their Grants-in-Aid Program helps graduate students research petroleum, energy-mineral resources or related environmental geology issues.
