Community Involvement

Our emphasis is on education. To this end we support the community as follows:

  • Science Fair. As part of its focus on the youth of New Mexico, the AGMC annually awards two US Savings Bonds for outstanding projects related to earth sciences at the Northwest Regional Science Fair.
  • Scholarships. The Club has a special relationship with the University of New Mexico and annually awards two scholarships to UNM students majoring in geology with special interest in mineralogy.
  • Socorro Mineral Symposium. As part of the Club's special relationship with New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology, we have been a co-sponsor of the annual mineral symposium in Socorro since 1979.
