GSRS needs your support!

November 01, 2021
Dear Geosciences Students, Staff, Researchers, and Faculty:

We are still in the midst of the GSRS crowdfunding campaign with only 13 days left to donate! If you haven't yet, please visit the 2022 GSRS crowdfunding page and consider making a contribution to this amazing event.  GSRS not only provides an opportunity for our students to continue to develop their research communication skills, but also builds community within our great department. Your support makes GSRS possible and the food we end up serving at the lunches and banquet edible!  

A giant thank you to the 40 individuals who have already donated!

Max and the GSRS crowdfunding team. 

GSRS27: You still have time to donate!

November 01, 2021

To all of you who have already given to this year's Geosciences Student Research Symposium: thank you! Our fundraising campaign is off to a great start because of you.

If you haven’t given yet, now is the time! As a reminder of the importance of your tax-deductible gift, GSRS is a conference unlike any other. GSRS is organized and operated entirely by students of the Geosciences Department at Virginia Tech. GSRS receives no departmental funding and is financed primarily through your generosity.

It is difficult to overstate the impact of your donation. Your gift supports a pre-GSRS Workshop Series where undergraduate and graduate students learn how to get the most out of their time at professional conferences. Your gift helps provide a venue, Squires Student Center, where we present our research. Your gift also helps us provide a post-GSRS reception in the Museum of Geosciences.

You are an integral part of GSRS and we can’t do this without you! Now is the perfect time, please visit the 2022 GSRS Donation Page and make your donation. Let's make this the best GSRS yet!

With gratitude,

Cecelia and the GSRS Fundraising Team

The 27th edition of GSRS: Donate today!

October 11, 2021

The crowdfunding campaign for the 27th edition of GSRS is now LIVE! This event is a longstanding tradition that brings the Department of Geosciences together for an exhibition of the excellent research being done by the graduate and undergraduate students here, at Virginia Tech. GSRS is only possible through the generosity of our alumni, friends, faculty, and students.

Thanks to all of you for helping this event continue year after year. We look forward to another successful crowdfunding season and GSRS!
