Since 1991, the Four Corners Geological Society and later its Foundation have given financial aid to 41 master’s degree candidates working on geoscience theses in Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona. Available funds vary but we usually make 1-3 grants per year in the $500 to $1000 range. We also help undergraduate geoscience students at Fort Lewis College in Durango, CO.
Your donations will help us expand existing programs and develop new ones. All donations are fully tax-deductible under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code. See below for donation options or contact us for more information at the Contact page on the menu.
