Increasing the number and diversity of future geoscientists


It is the intent of GeoFORCE Texas to increase the number and diversity of future geoscientists as well as to provide widespread acknowledgement of all sponsors. GeoFORCE is fulfilling those goals. The visibility of GeoFORCE Texas and its sponsors is clearly evident from the enthusiastic support from students, parents, teachers, and community leaders.

GeoFORCE Texas is a strategic priority for the Jackson School, which has dedicated resources to ensure its success.  Because the Jackson School provides all staff time for GeoFORCE, 100% of funds contributed go directly to program activities.

Individuals or companies interested in becoming involved with these fantastic students are encouraged to contact Program Director Leah Turner or Associate Director of Corporate Relations Kristen Tucek.

You can also use the University of Texas’ online giving portal at UTGIVING. Under “notes” you can specify how the contribution is to be used. Contributions from GeoFORCE students or graduates will be added to the Gerson Garcia Scholarship Fund in honor of a GeoFORCE student killed in an auto accident in 2011, unless otherwise directed.
