Duncan Hall ExteriorIn recent years, when our equipment budget has been meager, contributions have enabled us to purchase supplies and to replace obsolete equipment. Right now, our needs include (but are not limited to) Brunton transit compasses, petrographic microscopes, and GPS units. Your donations also allow us to provide students with scholarships as well as help defray the cost of travel, thesis research, and field camp. We greatly appreciate contributions of all sizes and thank you for the support given to our programs.

Please visit Giving to SJSU to donate online, by mail, or by phone. Please scroll down to Search All SJSU Scholarships and click on the link "Search Scholarship" and locate Geology Scholarship fund. Please add a comment in the Special instructions text box to specify a specific Fund or Scholarship. If donating by check, please be sure to include that information on the memo line.
