Support Physics

Private Giving

Your contribution to the Physics Department will help our faculty members provide the best learning experience to our students.

In recent years, gifts to the department have allowed us to, amongst other things, send a delegation of physics majors to the Quadrennial National Society of Physics Students congress, to upgrade advanced undergraduate lab equipment, to allow graduate students to present their research at national conferences, to support summer research fellowships for physics undergraduates, and to recognize top physics students via academic awards and prizes.

Undergraduate research is supported through the Dorothy Pruitt Babcock Research Scholarship. The Cheryl Griffiths Tropf Graduate Fellowship supports graduate research.

You can contribute online now with your credit card, using our secure web server. The contribution form will be pre-selected to direct your gift to the general academic fund for the Physics Department, which supports student and faculty needs directly. 

Contributions to the Rolf Winter Memorial Fund support a fellowship offered annually to the graduate student in physics who has demonstrated dedication and excellence in the performance of his or her teaching responsibilities.
