Support NHFQ

Field Quarter Students in a field of poppies, 1978

Your support of Natural History Field Quarter helps us make this transformational course available to more of our future environmental stewards.  You can support NHFQ in several ways:

Support the Natural History Field Quarter current-use fund. Your gift supports immediate operational needs of the Field Quarter class, including additional field trips, guest speakers, equipment, and staffing.

Make a donation online. On the UCSC Online Giving page, the designation will read: Natural History Field Quarter (Environmental Studies): Current Use.

Support the Natural History Field Quarter student scholarship endowment fund. Your gift helps fund student scholarship awards each year.  This fund was created in celebration of past NHFQ student Annais Rittenberg (NHFQ 2013). This fund is only used for NHFQ student scholarships.

Make a donation online. On the UCSC Online Giving page, the designation will read: Annais Rittenberg Natural History Field Quarter Scholarship Endowment.
