Supporting Earth science education in Oklahoma
Since 1993, we have been supporting Earth science education in Oklahoma in a variety of ways. From our modest beginnings with net assets of just under $1,500 in 1994 to a total investment portfolio value of over $3 million year end 2021, we now have more than 19 grant, scholarship, and award programs to support Earth science education across the state.

We make a difference for teachers and students in Earth sciences through four key initiatives:

This hands-on interactive workshop equips teachers to bring engaging Earth science lessons to their classroom.
Rock, Mineral & Fossil Collections
Our Rock, Mineral & Fossil Collections bring science to life for students of all ages as they get hands-on with rocks, minerals, and fossils.
Grants & Scholarships
We award grants and scholarships at the elementary, secondary, and higher education levels.
