APS Minority Scholarship
The APS Minority Scholarship helps increase the number of under-represented minorities obtaining degrees in physics. It provides funding and mentoring to minority physics students, helping them enhance their education and successfully prepare for a variety of careers.
The Scholarship was started in 1980. The program, through the generosity of corporate and individual donors, has graduated students who have received their Ph.D.s in physics and are now working as physics faculty members in universities, as well as research scientists at corporations and national labs. Some past scholars have also become high school physics teachers.
Each year, the APS Committee on Minorities in Physics (COM) acts as the selection committee for this scholarship which attracts many excellent applicants.
Become an APS Minority Scholar
African-American, Hispanic American, or Native American U.S. citizens or permanent residents who are majoring or planning to major in physics, and who are a high school senior, college freshman, or sophomore are eligible to apply.
Deadline: February 7, 2014
