Again this year, our goal is to raise funds that will aid students who enroll in our "Standards and Practices for Professional Geoscientists”. This course aims to provide practical training for students seeking employment in careers outside of academia.
Two critical course activities include taking the ASBOG Fundamentals of Geology professional licensure exam (application fee $250) and completing the OSHA-required 40-hour HAZWOPER safety training (cost $425). These trainings and exams give our students an important edge when applying for jobs, but the costs can be prohibitive. These GTMD donations will go directly to the students to help defray the cost of these courses and exams.
Thanks to five generous department alumni, Give to the Max Day gifts will be matched up to $5,700! Your donation will help support our students as they prepare for their careers as the next generation of professional geologists and environmental geoscientists!
