Support Student Travel to PhysCon!
Your donations help us continue to encourage and support undergraduate physics students with scholarships, career resources, and professional development. Annual donations from Sigma Pi Sigma and SPS members help ensure the future of the physical sciences.
As the 2016 Quadrennial Physics Congress (PhysCon) draws near, we are asking you to make a gift to benefit the Congress Student Travel Fund (CSTF). The CSTF will assist undergraduate students who are studying physics, and other physical sciences, with traveling to this once-in-a-lifetime conference. PhysCon 2016 — Unifying Fields: Science Driving Innovation — allows students to be in the presence of scientists who are working and living in the spaces where the aspiring scientists hope to one day reside.
In preparation for PhysCon, we ask you to join the force as the Pi Awakens starting on 3.14.16. Celebrate Pi, make PhysCon a mega-success and make your donation to the CSTF.
Here is a brief reference on how your gift to the CSTF can benefit students who want to attend PhysCon.
- 10 gifts of $160π will help 10 students, from underrepresented groups, travel to PhysCon
- 8 gifts of $8π will provide a Congress (PhysCon) Travel Award for a student presenting a poster
- 5 gifts of $32π will fund a Reporter Award, allowing a student to attend and report on PhysCon
- 4 gifts of $16π will cover PhysCon registration for one student in financial need
