KMS Technologies is in alliance with GeoGlobal Development Corporation which receives funds from KMS Technologies and its shareholders. Together, they provide funding in terms of scholarships and tuition for students pursuing Geoscience degree. The universities that receive funding are listed below.
1. University of Cologne
Alumni Association at the University of Cologne has launched a program in 2009 that provides students with 1-year scholarships. Annually, the Alumni Association holds the Get Together Ceremony where the scholarships are awarded. KMS Technologies has participated in the program since 2011. From the donations contributed by our shareholders, The Alumni Association has generously given the priorities for Geophysics students to receive scholarships.
