Gerald Weber and Susan Holt Fund

PDF version of this information

Purpose: The Gerald Weber and Susan Holt Fund ("Weber-Holt Fund") supports meritorious undergraduate students in the Earth and Planetary Sciences Department at UCSC with scholarships for summer field camp.

students celebrate end at field camp

History: The Weber-Holt Fund was established by Gerry Weber and Sue Holt in support of one of the most important parts of the EPS undergraduate curriculum: summer field camp. Participation in a summer field camp is an iconic experience that satisfies the "capstone course" requirement applied to all undergraduates at the University of California. UCSC runs one of the best summer field camps in the U.S., and we are delighted that the Weber-Holt fund supports so many of outstanding EPS majors who participate in this valuable professional experience.

Status: The Weber-Holt Fund is currently endowed with just over $160,000.

Development Goal: Our long-term goal for the Weber-Holt fund is to grow the endowment to $500,000. At this level, return on investment could support $20k in annual scholarships. Given the legacy of support from the Weber-Holt fund, and the number of successful EPS graduates who have participated in our summer field program over the last 40 years, we hope to reach this goal in the next 3-5 calendar years.

Our Request: Please donate to the Weber-Holt Fund in support of EPS undergraduate students at field camp. You could make a one-time donation or pledge to give annually.
