The Fifth Annual Celebration of the EAPS Patrons Circle
This event is by invitation only. For more information contact: Angela Ellis, Senior Development Officer, 617-253-5796.
The Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences launched the EAPS Patrons Circle in 2014 to recognize those who have made a gift or multi-year gift/pledge of $75,000 or more to support our endowed or expendable fellowship funds. We are pleased to include those who have made an irrevocable provision for EAPS graduate fellowships through an estate plan.
An endowment gift of $1M helps to fund one graduate student in perpetuity. Departmental fellowships are critical to our success in attracting and retaining the best students and faculty in the world, and in providing students with the flexibility to explore "out of the box" scientific interests. The Annual EAPS Patrons Circle celebration provides an opportunity for us to express our appreciation to our leading fellowship donors, and for Patrons and graduate fellows to meet and build lasting friendships.
