Alumni Giving


The Department of Meteorology and Climate Science has limited general funds as well as scholarship and fellowship funds from which many student educational and professional development needs are met. The only sources of these funds are gifts from alumni and friends. Each year, the requests for assistance far exceed the amounts available. Support a specific need with a gift of any amount that make a real difference in the lives of current and future students in the Department of Meteorology and Climate Science. Below are examples of the department's needs. Gifts can be targeted to any of these items.

  • Student Travel (conferences, workshops and etc.)
  • Student Awards Program
  • Student Mentoring and Tutoring Programs
  • Scholarships and Fellowships (Undergraduate and Graduate)
  • Student Organizations

We also welcome gifts toward our Endowed Scholarships or Fellowships, Endowed Faculty Chairs, and Endowed Faculty Professorships. For information on these programs, please contact the SJSU Tower Foundation.
