Adopt a Field Camper!


UWEC Geology alumni have fond memories of field camps in New Mexico, Montana, and Wyoming filled with visions of solving complex geological problems, battling cacti, and grueling days spent amidst spectacular scenery.  Geologists have more fun! 

Unfortunately, paying for field camp is becoming more expensive for today's students. Between travel expenses and taking time off work, the field camp experience just isn't possible for some students if they don't receive financial support. You can help by making a gift today.

Give now to the Myers/Willis Geology Field Camp Scholarship fund.Your gift to the Myers/Willis Geology Field Camp Scholarship helps defray the cost of the field camp experience for geology students so that all students, regardless of their financial situation, have the opportunity to attend field camp. 

Please make a gift of any size to the Adopt a Field Camper program for Field Geology students. 

Thanks so much for supporting today's Geology students!

We've met our matching challenge!

Thank you to Dr. Paul Myers and Ric Kopp for matching donations to the Field Camp Scholarship. Thanks to them, gifts were matched dollar-for-dollar up to $5,600!


Thank you to all 2018 donors!

Last year many alumni and friends generously participated in the Adopt a Field Camper program. Because of you:

  • Donations of $22,600 were used to defray tuition expenses for 21 Field Camp I and II students
  • All tuition expenses ($1,100 each) were paid for seven Field Camp I students with the highest financial need.
  • We also used $3,900 to defray Field Camp II expenses for nine students with financial need.
