Physics Giving

Undergraduate Scholarships

Undergraduate scholarships enable students to devote more time to their studies and participate in research activities that help prepare them for productive careers as leaders in academia, medicine, and industry.   You may make an outright, one-time donation to provide scholarship support for a student (or multiple students) in one year or over multiple years.  Moreover, you can contribute to our endowment to provide a lasting, permanent source of funding.

Here are two ways in which you can help our physics undergraduates:

One-time Competitive Undergraduate Scholarship  |  $1,500-$5,000

Endowed Undergraduate Scholarship  |  $25,000 (can be pledged out over 5 years) 

Research and Program Support

You can invest in the department’s programs and research by providing gifts for immediate use or by creating an Excellence Fund – an endowment that provides funding for the most promising or pressing initiatives.  

Investing in Student Research |  $25,000 (can be pledged out over 5 years)

To complement, unify and strengthen the department’s research efforts, philanthropic investments in research help attract exceptional students and top scholars.  This support will make an immediate impact. Endowments can be established through a one-time gift or may be paid over a multi-year window up to five years, and, once established, you or anyone else may add to its principal at any time. Annual distributions from endowments support lab enhancements and student stipend for summer research

There are several options to more broadly invest in the college and join our efforts to develop leaders, promote discovery, create impact and transform lives.
