Since 1991, the Four Corners Geological Society and later its Foundation have given financial aid to 35 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.
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. Please contact us for more information.
