Jeff Masters (BS AOSS ’82, MS ’83, PhD ’97) has recently contributed a gift to supplement the Jeff Masters Students Support Fund he endowed in 2015. This fund focuses on need-based support for students enrolled in the College of Engineering’s Department of Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering (formerly known as the Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic and Space Sciences). Through the proceeds of this fund, students can receive financial support for areas such as student travel, participation on student teams and clubs, and books and materials associated with curriculum or student programs.
While working on his Ph.D. at the U-M, Jeff co-founded The Weather Underground, Inc. in 1995, an online weather service dedicated to improving access to meaningful weather data. Jeff currently serves as Director of Meteorology. This gift qualifies for a match from the University’s Michigan Matching Initiative for Student Support.
