The Barringer Family Fund for Meteorite Impact Research was established to support field work by eligible students interested in the study of impact cratering processes. The Fund provides a small number of competitive grants each year for support of field research at known or suspected impact sites worldwide.

The Fund was established as a memorial to recognize the contributions of Brandon, Moreau, Paul, and Richard Barringer to the field of meteoritics and the Barringer family's strong interest and support over many years in research and student education. In addition to its memorial nature, the Fund also reflects the family's long-standing commitment to responsible stewardship of The Barringer Meteorite Crater and the family's steadfast resolve in maintaining the crater as a unique scientific research and education site.
