This match has ended.

Your gift to the Verner E. Suomi Scholarship Award supports promising first-year college students as they begin their academic careers. Like Dr. Suomi, you can help introduce students to the thrill of research focused on weather and climate change.

For more than 55 years we have been proud to offer atmospheric science and remote sensing education and research opportunities for undergraduates. With your help, we can continue this vital work.

Why We Need Your Support

When you give to the Space Science and Engineering Center (SSEC) — the birthplace of satellite meteorology — you are making an investment in future scientists who are taking up the challenge to investigate and solve environmental problems to make the world a better place. This financial support allows our students the opportunity to contribute to research aimed at understanding atmospheric and environmental science, while working side by side with the best in the field

How Gifts Make a Difference

Your gift of any size will help the SSEC to continue:

  • Awarding the Verner E. Suomi Scholarship to promising undergraduates embarking on academic studies in atmospheric or environmental science.
  • Getting students in the field for hands-on experience with experiments and data gathering.
  • Providing mentorship and networking opportunities for students to engage with scientists conducting cutting-edge research.
