From volcanoes to classrooms, EARTH & PLANETARY SCIENCES is a leader in research, teaching, and outreach.

EPS VolcanoYour gift to EPS supports the education and training of talented graduate and undergraduate students and cutting-edge faculty and student research in EPS laboratories, on the world's oceans, and in field programs across the Americas, Africa, Europe, Indonesia, Russia, and China.

There are a number of ways you can help EPS.  We encourage you to contribute directly to one of our three dedicated annual funding initiatives, or if you prefer, you can contact us directly for specific, directed contributions.

Annual giving opportunities include:

  • EPS Development Fund
    Promotes academic excellence and assistance to faculty, graduate and undergraduate student research initiatives, for the purchase of small, related laboratory, field, instructional and office supplies and equipment.
  • Steven K. Fox Student Fund
    Supports undergraduate and graduate student field studies, laboratory research, as well as means to help offset costs of attending summer geology field schools and attending national meetings for training and to present research findings.
  • EPS Classroom/Laboratory Renovation Fund
    Provides for larger improvements to EPS facilities, renovation of research laboratories and classrooms, purchase of major research and laboratory equipment, improvements and modernization of lecture, seminar and laboratory classrooms.
