Why Partner with GSA and the GSA Foundation?

GSA brings together more than 26,000 geoscientists, of whom about 35% are students. Members range from seasoned professionals to these committed students, who represent the best and brightest hopes for the future of earth science. GSA members will see your company’s support to foster the growth of current and future leaders in the geosciences. Partnerships are a positive force in advancing science, stewardship, and service in the communities where you do business.

GSA offers top-notch programs at GSA meetings and throughout the year; our corporate partners play a vital role in sustaining and expanding these programs.
