Supporting Earth & Planetary Sciences


How you can help the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences

Your gift can benefit the Department in many significant ways including:

  • Fellowships for graduate students and Scholarships for undergraduate students
  • Support for students to do fieldwork or to present their research at national meetings
  • Acquisition of equipment for the Department, such as microscopes or specimens, etc.
  • Facilitate Department field trips
  • Have a lab, office, or room named after you or someone you love

When you make an outright gift, your contribution can be put to work immediately, either by providing funding for current programs or by creating reliable sources of future income by expanding the Department's endowment. 

Annual Contributors over $1,000 will be honored in our Hard Rock Sam Club.
