Help GeoFORCE Texas change the lives of high school students
GeoFORCE Texas changes lives! Invest in the next generation of diverse STEM leadership for Earth resources.
Since 2005, GeoFORCE Texas has worked to engage students from economically disadvantaged middle schools in STEM fields, most notably geology. In that time GeoFORCE Texas has made a name for itself by inspiring students to attend college and pursue degrees in these fields by taking them on week-long field academies for four consecutive summers. These trips are led by many mentors including a UT geoscience faculty member or research scientist, corporate geologists and former GeoFORCE Texas students serving as group counselors. With a 100% High School graduation rate, a 98% college enrollment rate, and 58% of GeoFORCE college students pursuing STEM degrees, our results speak for themselves. It is through our wondrous summer field academies to different parts of the country that we can truly inspire these students to pursue higher education in STEM fields.
There are large costs associated with taking forty-two students on each spectacular summer trip ranging from meals and supplies to hotels and airline tickets. We’re asking for at least 100 donors to help us in this campaign to show our students there are many people who want them to succeed. We’ve made it easy for you to donate by selecting one of our pre-established giving levels on the right side of this page, but give as you are able. We’re asking for your help to allow us to continue inspiring students. Your donation will show other students that they can dream bigger, that college and a career in a STEM field or other pathway is attainable. But most of all, your donations will show these students that there are people out there who believe in them, who want them to succeed, and who will help them have a brighter future.
Give to GeoFORCE Texas today to help change lives tomorrow!
