Make a Gift!
Astronomy encompasses all aspects of the physical universe, from the upper atmosphere of the Earth to the edge of the cosmos.
Your gift helps continue the excitement, curiosity, and innovation in these topics which fill our courses and inspire our research. Help us make a difference in the BU community and help us inspire beyond our campus.
Here are just a few direct ways in which a contribution will help the department further our mission:
- Student Field Trips to BU telescopes in Arizona
or to NASA labs
small – supports lodging costs for one student on a field trip
medium – supports a round-trip airline trip for one student
- Perkins Telescope Nightly Operations
medium – supports the costs to operate the PTO for one night
large – supports the costs for BU use of the Lowell Discovery Telescope for one night
- CAS Building Rooftop Observing
medium – supports the cost to replace a color CCD camera on one rooftop telescope
large – supports funding for a new rooftop telescope
- Undergraduate Researcher Support
medium – Funding can help support undergraduate research assistants for part or all of a summer
- Graduate Student Support
large – Funding can help support graduate students for a summer or an academic year of research
