OGF Board

We are the Oklahoma Geological Foundation and we're all about supporting Oklahoma's students, teachers and schools.

Our Vision for the Future

In 1993, a group of Oklahoma geologists had the foresight and desire to promote Earth Science programs within the Oklahoma school systems. Since 1996, the Oklahoma Geological Foundation has been an instrumental source of funding that directly benefits many Earth Science programs. From the beginning, the Oklahoma Geological Foundation has annually funded grants and scholarships throughout Oklahoma, to students in elementary, middle, and high schools, and to students enrolled in undergraduate and graduate programs in colleges and universities. The Foundation actively promotes numerous programs that support teachers and educational institutions.

The Oklahoma Geological Foundation continues to grow and by mid-2018, the Foundation has established twenty-one programs, each of which are available to encourage the participation in the Earth Sciences.
