End-of-Year Giving Quick Links

Looking to make an impact to the School of Geosciences through end-of-year gifts? Here are three priorities in the School of Geosciences.


Sarkeys Energy Center Plaza Renovation

The recent repairs to the roof on the SEC Plaza have provided an opportunity to build a unique and anticipated Outdoor Classroom for students in Geosciences, campus visitors, and K-12 outreach. Join us in the effort to create unique outdoor learning spaces that will aid in experiential learning, recruitment and retention for School of Geosciences students.

R. Douglas Elmore Endowed Scholarship Fund  *Match Available*

In honor of beloved professor Doug Elmore, a fund has been established that will allow Dr. Elmore to grant scholarships every year to deserving students, ensuring his legacy for decades to come. Thanks to the generosity of Chris and Cathy Cheatwood, all gifts up to $100,000 will be matched.


Emma Giddens

Emma Giddens Memorial Scholarship

Alumna Emma Giddens (M.S., 2016) was a promising young geoscientist. Emma passed away in 2020. Her family has established a memorial fund in her honor, which will award an annual grant to the student “who best exemplifies Emma’s passion for geology, brilliant scientific mind, kind empathetic heart and relentless drive for perfection."
