Make a Gift to the Biology Department
Here in the Biology Department, we would like our students to get involved in the actual practice of biology, so they can see what being a biologist means outside of the classroom! They can do this in a variety of ways, such as conducting research with a faculty member, participating in field courses, attending scientific meetings, or getting outside the classroom on class field excursions. If you would like to contribute to help us support any of these activities, your generosity would be greatly appreciated! We have several different funding options for you to choose from; some focus on a particular area of need, while others can be used more broadly. We also have several scholarships which help support upper-level (juniors and seniors) in our department. Thank you for your support!
