Diversity Initiatives


Sciencequest - ScienceQuest is an after school informal science and technology program geared towards elementary and middle school students (ages 7-14). Two person team leaders work with 3-5 students to explore a science topic that they have identified at the beginning of the program. Teams meet once a week for 1.5 hours over a course of 10-12 weeks. Each team uses small-scale experiments, demonstrations, and science technology to investigate their topic, culminating in the development of an on-line website depending on the group's age.

Geoscholars - The GeoScholar Scholarship Program provides financial and academic support for underrepresented students who have demonstrated financial need and are pursuing undergraduate degrees in the geosciences at the University of South Carolina: Environmental Science, Geology, Geophysics, and Marine Science.
