Support the Department of Physics

The Department of Physics appreciates your willingness to extend financial support for its programs. While the department receives some support from the College of Arts and Sciences and the University, our needs typically exceed the amount of support we receive. As a result, we always welcome financial contributions designated specifically for the Department of Physics.

Currently, the department is soliciting support to fund department-based scholarships through the H. Tiit Tohver Scholarship Fund. This fund provides support for scholarships, travel and publication costs associated with research for undergraduate and graduate physics students.  To donate to this scholarship, the University has now made it possible for you to provide support directly to this scholarship fund via online giving. This secure link will solicit basic information including the amount you wish to donate this scholarship fund.

Online donations to this account can be made through the following link. After selecting "See all funds" and then selecting "I do not see my fund", enter "Physics Gift Account" in response to "Where would you like your gift to go?" as well as the amount you wish to donate.

No gift is too small -- every dollar received directly supports our initiatives and represents one less dollar we need to raise from other sources.

On behalf of the Department of Physics, its faculty members, support staff, and students, thank you for considering a gift to us! Your generosity will help the department continue to move forward with its programs and exciting initiatives!
