In 2010, at the 30th anniversary of the Structural Geology and Tectonics
Division of the Geological Society of America, the Structural
Geology and Tectonics Division Student Fund was initiated. The
division has always supported student research and travel to
conferences, field trips and short courses via membership dues
and proceeds from merchandise sales. This is money well spent.
Past recipients of graduate student research grants are now some
of the shining stars of our field. Students represent the future
of our division, and the board considers the support of students
who are interested in structural geology and tectonics to be
among our highest priorities. The student fund is housed at the
GSA Foundation where it can grow through investments and
interest as well as donations. You can donate directly to the
fund, knowing that 100% of your tax-deductible donation is going
to support student activities. Click

the 2014 Student Field Trip and Short Course Grant awardees.
The initial goal was to grow the SG&T Division Student Fund to $80K and
we are now more than 90% there, at ca. $73K. Once we reach this
goal, the interest from that amount will provide more support
for students than we have ever been able to offer in the history
of the SG&T Division. To really reflect the size and scope of
the Division, we hope to build the fund to $200K. With this
amount we will be able to greatly expand our current level of
support for students and will be able to consider new categories
of support. Thus we continue to ask those of you who can do so
to donate even more, and we are also looking for members who
would be willing to match the donations of others.
Donations to the SG&T Student Fund can be made through the Foundation's
www.gsafweb.org or by
contacting the Foundation (contact info on that site).
Thank you so much for your support.
