Support the Geology and Natural Resource Management Student Fund

OUR GOAL: To support 100% of student academic travel costs.

Students routinely tell us that one of the most impactful experiences they had as a student was attending meetings away from WCU. These experiences are important for building confidence, getting feedback, and for the kind of networking that leads to students finding jobs or graduate assistanceships.

However, these experiences are expensive. We believe students should not have to pay for them.

Many of our students cannot afford to pay hundreds of dollars to travel for one of these experiences, which means if we do not have the funds to cover them, they cannot go.

You can help us make sure no student misses out on a life-changing experience because they can’t afford it! So, donate today! Every penny of your donation will go directly to our students

Donations of ANY AMOUNT are valuable! But, what would my contribution pay for? 

$20 buys one student a meal at a conference

$50 feeds one student for a day at a conference

$100 pays the conference registration of one student

$200 covers the hotel stay for one student at a conference
