ARMA Foundation

The ARMA Foundation, a tax-exempt sister organization to ARMA, promotes rock mechanics and rock engineering through educational activities. The Foundation administers programs to help defray the cost for students to attend the annual symposium and enables ARMA to provide educational benefits to its members.

The mission of the ARMA Foundation is to promote the development and applications of rock mechanics, rock engineering, and geomechanics worldwide; to bring together individuals from multiple disciplines interested in application of these fields to problems of societal importance; to support students and young scientists and engineers in launching their careers in rock mechanics, rock engineering and geomechanics; and to disseminate knowledge and information about these disciplines through symposia, workshops, and publications.
