Geoscientists without Borders Support Fund

GWB projects support global communities in need by utilizing applications of geoscience knowledge and technology, while ensuring long-term sustainability within the impacted community by engaging the next generation of geoscientists. Project grants and the development and implementation of the program are all supported by the GWB Support Fund.

Many of the world's most pressing humanitarian issues fall into categories where geoscientists can make significant contributions because of their unique and advanced knowledge about the Earth. These issues include Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH); food security; disaster risk reduction (landslides, earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes) and environmental and cultural conservation. Please visit to learn more about the world-wide impact of this humanitarian program.
