About this funder:



The Robert F. Legget Fund of the AEG Foundation supports publications and public outreach in engineering geology and environmental geology that serve as information resources for the professional practitioner, students, faculty, and (or) the public. The fund also supports public education about the interactions between the works of mankind and the geologic environment. 

The subject matter scope of publications supported by the Legget Fund may include original works, reviews, compilations, symposium proceedings, benchmark papers, bibliographies, databases, memorials, biographies and oral history interviews of those who made valuable contributions to the progress of the science and profession of engineering geology, and studies of the demographics of the profession, inter-professional relations, and the role of the profession in society. The publication venue of supported publications may include print media, electronic media, internet publication, and audio-visual media. The Legget Fund may support reprints of publications within its scope and the conversion of publications in one medium to another. In making grants for these purposes, the Foundation will require an appropriate level of peer review and editorial quality. 

Public education activities that the fund can support include K-12 teacher resources, publications to inform the public about the interactions between the works of mankind and the geologic environment, and signage or explanatory materials at public locations of interest for their engineering geology or environmental geology significance.
