Quinney College of Natural Resources

As an alumnus of the Quinney College of Natural Resources, you know the value of an outstanding college education. It’s not just a degree, but rather the formative experiences that lead to a career in a field you are passionate about. As one of the premier Colleges of Natural Resources in the country, we strive to provide outstanding faculty and teaching as well as meaningful field research and internship opportunities that help our students compete for natural resources jobs in both the public and private sector. Those incredible opportunities have benefited many generations of students who have gone on to contribute in meaningful ways to natural resources management all over the world. Those opportunities are the result of the dedication of our faculty, staff, agency partners and alumni.

I am writing to ask for your help in continuing to provide this outstanding level of education to the current generation of students. Donations from alumni make possible the rich array of opportunities that make our students so sought after in the professional market. These opportunities range from scholarships, support for students to attend professional meetings, state of the art field and lab equipment, and critical internships with agencies and employers that put context to classroom learning and contacts for careers. Jordan Risley (right) has benefited from many of these opportunities.

Donations from alumni like you allow the College to support innovative opportunities for students to excel. Please consider a gift of any size to the College this year to make these opportunities available to our students. Even better, a recurring annual gift allows the college to effectively allocate resources to the most important needs and opportunities.

Whether you are able to make a gift or not, you have my profound thanks for finding ways to support the Quinney College of Natural Resources in any way you can.

With Much Thanks,

Chris Luecke

What Scholarships have done for me

The QCNR has changed my life in ways that I could not have imagined when I first stepped through its doors and into the fabled atrium. I have grown immensely not only academically but also personally through the help of various mentors in the college. I will forever be indebted and grateful for the QCNR and all who made it possible for me to attend.
