The selection committee for SPS Google Scholarship will consider applicants’ interest and perseverance in physics or astronomy, their effort and potential, and their active participation in their physics department, clubs, and programs outside the classroom, such as SPS.
This scholarship was created to support passionate physics and astronomy students, particularly those who are in need or have overcome significant obstacles in their professional journey. Google co-sponsor Sandeep Giri, who is also a member of the AIP Foundation Board of Trustees and a former SPS member and scholarship recipient when he was an undergraduate student, said, “We are excited to meet these passionate physics students and encourage anyone eligible to apply.”
Michael Moloney, CEO of AIP, noted that this partnership with Google is incredibly powerful and developing and sustaining similar corporate support for AIP programs is a key fundraising strategy for the AIP Foundation. He added, “We are very grateful to Sandeep and our new partners at Google.”
In addition to this scholarship, SPS offers other scholarships of up to $6,000 to support undergraduate students with an interest in physics and astronomy. The professional association exists to help students transform into contributing members of the professional community by developing skills outside of the classroom.
