The Seismological Society of America is a non-profit organization that depends, in part, on the generosity of the seismological community. Your contributions further the mission of each SSA Fund: the General Fund, Annual Meeting Sponsorships, the Student Travel Fund, the Joyner Fund, and the Kanamori Fund.
Contributions to the General Fund:
Donations support SSA's new and ongoing programs including publishing, meetings, government relations, communications, and allow SSA to keep membership dues affordable.
Sponsorships at the SSA Annual Meeting:
SSA invites corporations and organizations to sponsor events at the SSA Annual Meeting in spring. Through their valuable financial support and participation, SSA is able to provide an excellent and dynamic meeting each year.
Student Travel Fund:
This fund supports modest travel grants to help students attend the SSA annual meeting. The larger the fund, the more grants we can give to students, who are chosen on the basis of their abstracts.
The William B. Joyner Memorial Fund was established to promote education and to improve the use of seismology in earthquake engineering. The fund honors Bill Joyner, a longtime SSA member, who died in 2001. In his distinguished career with the U.S. Geological Survey, Bill was particularly effective at bridging the gap between seismologists and engineers. More information is available on the Joyner Lecture pages. SSA, in cooperation with EERI, established the William B. Joyner Memorial Fund Lectures to be given at the Annual Meeting of each group.
The purpose of the fund is to support the professional development of students, seismologists and earthquake engineers. Presently it provides a travel grant to SSA meetings from countries that are members of the European Seismological Commission under a reciprocal agreement. As the fund grows, programs will be expanded
