CSUSB students pursuing full-time study in STEM degrees may be eligible for scholarships thanks to recently awarded generous grant of $75,000 from Edison International.
Caroline Amplatz, attorney and private benefactor, provided generous support to CSUSB’s Department of Geological Sciences.
The grant from the W.M. Keck Foundation will support an undergraduate digital-mapping program that puts cutting-edge equipment directly in the hands of students.
Bryan Castillo (MS, Earth and Environmental Sciences, ’19) was among several geologists, students, researchers, and others who traveled from near and far to investigate the damage wrought by the July 4 and 5 quakes near Ridgecrest.
Sally McGill (geological sciences), James Mulvihill (geography and environmental studies emeritus), Katherine Gray (art), Rishabh Kumar (economics) and Alemayehu G. Mariam (political science emeritus) share their expertise with the news media.
Appreciating the value of firsthand learning, the CSUSB Department of Geological Sciences helped students expand their knowledge during a seven-day visit to the Desert Studies Center in Zzyzx.
