Sulo and Aileen Maki Endowment

About the Maki Endowment

The Sulo and Aileen Maki Endowment was established by the Sulo and Aileen Maki Trust to be used by the Desert Research Institute Division of Hydrologic Sciences for research, instruction, and scholarships relevant to southern Nevada water issues. The endowment supports innovative, creative, and multidisciplinary research, as well as scholarly endeavors such as journal publications and presentations at scientific conferences, water resources course instruction and student scholarships, and community outreach and service. The overall goal of these efforts is to make the Division of Hydrologic Sciences and the name Maki stand for excellence in water resources research, education, and outreach.
