Pickens $9.4 Million Gift to Alma Materadmin
Oilman T. Boone Pickens gave Oklahoma State University another multimillion gift.
The American Association of Petroleum Geologists Foundation says Pickens will donate $9.4 million to a fund that will create a consortium between the foundation and school.
The Boone Pickens Digital Geology Fund will pay for graduate geology students at Oklahoma State to perform research and create digital maps detailing geologic, scientific and resource information. The maps will be made available through the foundation’s online database.
Pickens graduated from Oklahoma A&M, forerunner of Oklahoma State University, in 1951 with a degree in geology.
