Endowment and Program Support
APAG receives financial support from companies such as Mobil Oil Corporation and Newport News Shipbuilding for its requirements and has been the beneficiary of encouragement and endorsement from Gulf and American diplomats, the Secretary General of the Gulf Cooperation Council, and prominent civic leaders and academics in the Gulf with whom the concept has been discussed.
The Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences [KFAS] has provided funding for the initial phase of a project to locate and collect archives of historical significance relating to the operations of petroleum companies in the area.
To achieve its objectives fully, APAG actively solicits support from individuals, firms, and institutions in the United States and the Peninsula & Gulf states, to endow and support program activities and to forge durable links between American and regional scholars and societies. Immediate objectives include endowment of a Professorship in Arabian Peninsula & Gulf Studies.
