Help foster our ambitious students and faculty by making a charitable gift this year to the UHM Department of Earth Sciences. Your donation will help maintain and provide modern teaching infrastructure, support
field excursions, research experiences, and fellowships for students, and support out-of-state visits and in-house-TGIF seminars by world class Earth scientists.
Please contribute to the Department of Earth Sciences funds at the University of Hawai‘i Foundation and help make those geo-dreams come true for a new group of emerging geoscientists.
This is our most flexible "greatest needs" fund. Gifts to the Earth Sciences Enrichment Fund support scientists in their quest to understand the complex mysteries of the world around us. Your gift will advance the frontiers of science by helping our scientists build high-performance instrumentation, attract talented graduate and postdoctoral students, and provide funds for promising new research initiatives.
Give the gift of research! Gifts to our Undergraduate Research Fund provide research support for promising new research initiatives amongst our thriving undergraduate student community. UHM Earth students are strongly encouraged to participate in research with a faculty mentor while pursing their Earth Science degrees. Funds for stipends, research supplies, travel to conferences and/or field work, and cohort activities such as organization events and field trips are a critical part of undergraduate research success.
Gifts Earth Sciences Field Trip Fund support our students to conduct field exercises in our courses, such as geological field methods, volcanology, hydrology, sedimentology, structure, Dynamic Earth, Geology of the Hawaiian Islands, Petrology, and others.
This fund helps the department invite extraordinary scientists from around the world to present their work at our TGIF Seminar series.
The William T. Coulbourn award is offered yearly to undergraduate or graduate students in the Department of Earth Sciences. The purpose of this award is to support student research marine geology. Requests of up to $1,000 are considered for each applicant. This award is given annually in memory of department alumnus and faculty member Dr. William T. Coulbourn.
The Harold T. Stearns Fellowship is offered yearly to undergraduate or graduate students in the Department of Earth Sciences to support geological research of Pacific Islands and shorelines bordering the Pacific Ocean. Longtime department friend Dr. Harold T. Stearns endowed this award.
Each year awards are given to Department of Earth Sciences majors to offset the cost of geology summer field camp. These awards are used exclusively to attend summer geology field camps outside of Hawaii.
