RMS Foundation

Lou Bortz is recognized for his 20 years of service by RMS Foundation Chair, Rob Diedrich.

The RMS-AAPG Foundation was established by the AAPG Rocky Mountain Section for the purpose of making grants or loans to the member societies and other organizations.
The Foundation seeks to:

  • advance the study of petroleum geology in the Rocky Mountain region,
  • support publication of geologic research,
  • promote continuing professional education of petroleum geologists, assist the teaching and study of geology in public and private schools and institutions of higher learning, and
  • enhance the public's awareness and appreciation of geology.

Standing grants are available to member societies for the AAPG Distinguished Lecture Series. These grants are intended to cover the AAPG fee charged to affiliated societies with less than 300 members. For the 2014-2015 Series, the grant for each lecture was $365. Affiliated societies may request this grant by submitting a copy of the AAPG invoice for each lecture.

Requests for information or grants should be directed to:
