Resources for Underrepresented Students

If you know of any other helpful resources we can post on this page, we would be grateful; please contact us! Please also contact us with accessibility questions/comments/concerns – we would be happy to put you in touch with the undergraduate representative to the department renovations committee. 

Student and Professional Societies (students are welcome to join!)

Wash. U. Clubs


School-year research, Summer Internships, and Summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REUs)

Fellowships and Awards

Bridge programs
1-2 year post-baccalaureate programs (often leading to a master’s degree) for students who would benefit from more preparation before applying to physics PhD programs. Admission to these programs usually comes with a full-tuition scholarship, full-year living stipend, and sometimes physics conference and travel expenses too. In addition to coursework and scientific training, students receive mentorship for the PhD application process. These programs are often specifically geared towards underrepresented students in physics.
