Support Geophysics

We appreciate your support!

The programs and opportunities that we provide for our students are made possible and enhanced, largely by the funds and in-kind support that we receive from off-campus individual and corporate donors.  Your gifts allow us to serve our students in a variety of ways, including:

  • graduate and undergraduate fellowships and scholarships
  • opportunities for students to attend and present at professional conferences
  • computing equipment and upgrades
  • research opportunities and quality senior design experiences for undergraduates
  • Geophysics Field Camp
  • student society activities, both on and off-campus
  • annual Geophysics newsletter

Your gift makes a big impact on the experiences of this department.  For more information about how to make a gift, please contact Sara Pond, Director of Annual Giving at the Colorado School of Mines Foundation, at or by phone at 303.273.3153.
