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!

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


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

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.
