Geology Field Trips 2017

Who We Are

The ConocoPhillips School of Geology and Geophysics, founded in 1990, has been a leader in the Geological Sciences, in education and research, for over a century. Housed within the Mewbourne College of Earth & Energy, the School educates over 250 undergraduates and graduates aspiring to be geoscience professionals. ‘Hands-on’ education and field based skills, makes the School an academic leader for end-to-end geology and geophysics education and research.

How You Can Help

Our 1-3-day field trips are a key reason our school continues to produce such exceptional graduates. Field trips consist of one-day trips to week-long endeavors, serve between 10 and 25 students per trip, and range in cost from $1,500 to $10,000 per trip.

These field trips are currently underfunded, placing a heavy financial burden on students. With your donation, you will help relieve that burden and allow more students to participate in trips. These trips give students, like us, the opportunity to practice what we study in the classroom and help students upon graduation by providing working knowledge of the field. Please, help us continue our field trip programs, so our school can continue to provide students with the best learning opportunities and prepare them for their successful careers.

Thank you!

We are so grateful for the unwavering support so many of you have shown! Without our donors, we would not be a top-ranked School. Your support truly spells the difference in the opportunities the school can provide for students and the future leaders of the industry. We are thankful to you for considering supporting our programs and helping to perpetuate our school's mission.
