Donate to SPS and Sigma Pi Sigma on GivingTuesday

As part of the Giving Tuesday initiative, the Society of Physics Students, Sigma Pi Sigma, and the American Institute of Physics celebrate #APhysicsDayofGiving, a 24-hour, online, fundraising and awareness event, on Tuesday, December 1, 2015. #GivingTuesday is a national day of philanthropy held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.

#APhysicsDayofGiving will highlight specific opportunities where your support is needed. Scholarships, travel stipends, and internships all comprise AIP's Student Programs. As always, on #GivingTuesday you may direct your contributions to the area(s) that you so desire. We are appealing to you, someone with a mind for physics and the heart and desire to help students who are the future of the physical sciences. 

In addition to the disignation areas in which Student Programs continues to seek support, this year a special designation area has been added: Congress Student Travel Fund. This fund will allow students to apply to receive a Reporter Award. This award is competitive and will provide a stipend for students to register for and travel to the 2016 Quadrennial Physics Congress (PhysCon) to serve as official reporters for the conference. 

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn for more information on YOUR participation in #APhysicsDayofGiving!

Thank you for your support!

2016 Quadrennial Physics Congress

A significant part of AIP’s Student Programs is the 2016 Quadrennial Physics Congress (PhysCon). PhysCon 2016 will be held in Silicon Valley, November 3-5, 2016. It is the largest gathering of undergraduate physics students in the nation and allows them to spend valuable time with mentors, world-renowned physicists, and their peers. To make this conference the best experience possible for physics students, AIP, SPS and Sigma Pi Sigma are seeking sponsorships from corporations and contributions from individuals to benefit the Congress Student Travel Fund. PhysCon 2016 will be interactive and engaging!
