GWB® Program Information

About GWB

Geoscientists have the tools needed to effect positive change in communities facing environmental hardship and natural hazards like severe water shortages and threats of earthquakes and tsunamis. Your gift puts geoscientists to work around the world, where they apply their specialized knowledge and technical skills to the mitigation of natural hazards in some of the world's neediest communities.

The mission of Geoscientists Without Borders® supports humanitarian applications of geoscience around the world.

Program Goals and Objectives

  1. Provide funding to projects that will benefit communities in need, where applying geoscience and information is critical to improving poor conditions or where dangerous conditions and hazards can be mitigated or removed using applied geoscience technology.
  2. Strengthen the global geoscience community through beneficial multidisciplinary partnerships and cooperation with other organizations active in engineering and geoscience.
  3. Encourage students and introduce them to the broad range of geosciences careers while also strengthening university programs in geophysics and the geosciences.
