Whether you are a graduate, a forensic science specialist, or an interested citizen, there are numerous ways to support the forensic science program.
Opportunities exist in the near future and for years to come. Consider a few of the possibilities below:
- Make a Monetary Donation – Your funds create scholarships, support student travel to the annual American Academy of Forensic Sciences meeting, support students who participate in public learning fairs, and provide access to current technology and databases relevant to budding forensic scientists.
- Donate Equipment – Certain used laboratory equipment such as microscopes; Old 10 gal fish tanks make great fuming chambers, even when cracked; gun enthusiasts generate useful spent cartridge collections and firearms components (no live ammunition or working firearms please); many items are useful, just ask.
