The Benchmark Fund

Benchmark Logo

The Geology Alumni Advisory Board initiated the Benchmark Fund in 2009; this fund helps us provide critical support to our graduate students. The fund helps students bridge the gap on tuition and health insurance costs not always provided through research grants or other university funds. These extra funds help USU Geology recruit and retain hard-working students. Since its inception, the fund has helped over forty graduate students complete their degrees. In order for this fund to continue to impact students we need to raise a minimum of $25,000 to meet the needs of current and future graduate students.

To contribute to the Benchmark Fund, you can send a check to the development office or you can go to the Utah State University secure on-line payment portal to the right. Please make checks payable to Utah State University and write down the name of the gift in the memo section of the check. You can send checks to the following address:
