Support the Society for Physics Students

Advancing Physics and Astronomy for Future Generations

Society of Physics Students and Sigma Pi Sigma

Through your support, the Society of Physics Students and Sigma Pi Sigma are strengthening the physical science community.

Join us in opening doors for students of all backgrounds to engage in cutting edge research, lead science education programs for the public, and inform science policy.


Please help us by supporting one or more of these designations:

  • The AIP-SPS Emergency Scholarship Fund:
    The SPS Emergency Scholarship Fund has been established through seed funding furnished by the American Institute of Physics in response to the displacement, hardship, and upheaval many students have faced in conjunction with the COVID-19 pandemic. Gifts to this fund directly support students to alleviate such financial challenges. Sigma Pi Sigma is accepting and reviewing applications for aid to undergraduate students from this new scholarship fund.  Awards can be used for tuition assistance and core living expenses, such as room and board.

  • The Sigma Pi Sigma Centennial Fund: 
    In celebration of the upcoming Centennial of Sigma Pi Sigma in 2021, a new endowment is being established to secure the future of PhysCon for generations to come. Your gift will be used to establish an endowment to underwrite Physics Congresses in the future.

  • The Congress Student Travel Fund:
    Support students traveling to the 2019 Congress in Providence, Rhode Island by underwriting airfare, lodging and meals.

  • The Sigma Pi Sigma Annual Fund: 
    Provides merit- and need-based scholarships for undergraduate students as well as grant funding for chapters to conduct science outreach in their local communities.

  • The Sigma Pi Sigma Endowment: 
    To ensure that students in future generations will have the opportunity to participate in meetings like PhysCon, consider giving to the Sigma Pi Sigma Endowment.

  • The Mather Science Policy Internship Fund:
    Continues the work of Nobel Laureate John Mather to bring science students to Capitol Hill for summer internships to bridge the gap between scientists and policymakers.

  • You can make a one-time gift or become a sustaining donor by pledging a monthly recurring gift. To get started, select a gift amount and designation, below.  Thank you for your generosity!
