On To the Future is a grassroots initiative of the Geological Society of America to provide partial funding for 125 diverse students to attend their first GSA Annual Meeting each year. Support from donors helps provide partial funding for OTF participants to experience the meeting and join programs that facilitate effective mentoring relationships and networking opportunities. Many GSA members describe their first annual meeting as a turning point in their journey as a geoscientist.
OTF participants receive financial and programmatic support focused on accelerating the process of becoming an engaged and involved member of the scientific and professional community, and realizing a successful career in the geosciences.
The below videos feature OTF scholar Diamond Tachera and Judith Parrish during GSA 2015 in Baltimore, Maryland.
