New Endowed Award for Geology

Ulf, ’95 MS Geology, and Kelly Becker have established a new endowed award, The Becker Family Award in Geology. This fund is intended to assist field mapping and research expenses related to graduate and undergraduate studies in geology. Ulf is enthusiastic about the collaborative learning & field experience he gained at NAU, around the Colorado Plateau, the Basin & Range, and Grand Canyon.  He and Kelly want the same for future students – they encourage other Geology alumni to support this or other endowed scholarships intended to benefit the Geology Program at NAU.
