Giving to USU Geology

Our Goal

Our department provides many small scholarships as well as critical healthcare and tuition support to our students every year--all possible through charitable giving. We aspire to build select endowments to meet rising healthcare and tuition costs and also to provide significant fellowships to attract underrepresented, first-generation, and high-achieving students.

Summit Initiative

Make a Gift, Make a Difference

The Summit Initiative is a three year effort to significantly increase the total value of the department’s endowment, specifically to improve student access, fund student enrichment, and develop resources for faculty teaching and research.
