Three priority funds
The Physics Undergraduate Enrichment Fund
Enables the Department to provide a wide set of programs for our undergraduates that are at the heart of the community we are constantly working to build. Programs include clubs and special events, recognition gifts for our outstanding graduates, travel to conferences and meetings to present results, and summer research opportunities.
The Physics Graduate Student Fund
Provides support for community-building graduate student activities, research, and travel to conferences and meetings.
The Equipment Fund
Cutting edge research in the department requires state-of-the-art equipment. This year, we are focusing on building a low vibration quantum electronics lab which will enable us to probe quantum mechanics in the most pristine states of matter. Your donation will not only help us push forward the frontiers of knowledge but also provide excellent training for students.
