To Change the World, You Must Experience It
Fieldwork is an integral part of the Jackson School student experience. From Introduction to Geology to our cornerstone summer field courses, our students are getting hands-on experience from the start. And while other earth science programs have scaled back field offerings, we’ve ramped ours up, expanding courses in hydrogeology and marine geosciences.
Our undergraduate and graduate students have the opportunities to travel throughout the country and internationally to conduct research. They also benefit from the natural laboratory of Texas, which includes some of the world’s most avidly studied geological sites. While these experiences are invaluable, the average 6 week summer field course costs between $5,000 and $6,000.
YOUR financial support makes this all possible. Your funds go toward helping students conduct research in the field near and far and ensuring that hundreds of young geoscientists take our weeks-long field courses every summer.
Every gift makes a difference, and we need your support now as we prepare to send students into the field this summer. Check out the challenges to the right for opportunities to increase the impact of your donation
