Bill Rose Geoscience Student Travel Fund

Giving to this fund helps to create an ongoing and dependable source of funding to provide vital off campus experiences for our geo students. We continually hear from them that their professional field trips to see the real world, often accompanied by experts and student peers from all over the world, are among their best and highest level learning experiences. The best geoscientists have seen the most rocks.
