GIFTS TO THE DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICS

Foundation accounts are crucial to the operation of the Physics Department, and we are very grateful that you think highly enough of what we do here to consider making a donation to help us in our efforts to unravel the mysteries of the universe. This page identifies a few specific needs you can support, but we would welcome a chance to talk with you about any other possible uses for your donation, or if you have any questions about the many things we do at the IU Department of Physics.

• Graduate Fellowships: The department has a number of graduate fellowship programs, and our experience has been that the availability of such funds can have a very positive impact on our graduate recruiting efforts. If you have a specific fund in mind that you would like to contribute to, you can indicate that fund by writing its name into the “write in a gift area” field. Otherwise, you can select a general purpose Graduate fellowship fund from the pull-down menu

• Physics Enrichment fund: These unrestricted funds are to be used at the discretion of the Chair in a manner deemed beneficial to the Department. Common uses for the funds in this account include support for visitors and speakers to the Department, assistance in recruiting efforts, and support for students and other vital Departmental needs that are difficult to fund through other means.

• Foundations in Science and Math: This fund supports a summer program devoted to introducing high school students to Math and Science. The program also provides important experience for our graduate students who run the program and provide the instruction. For more details, see http://www.indiana.edu/~fsm/.

If you have any other specific ideas regarding how you would like the department to make use of your donation please contact the Physics Department at (812) 855-1247 or click HERE to send an e-mail message to the department.
