PhysCon 2016

The 2016 Quadrennial Physics Congress (PhysCon) was a huge success, and we are asking you to make a gift to support future students via the Congress Student Travel Fund (CSTF). The CSTF will assist undergraduate students with traveling to this once-in-a-lifetime conference.

In preparation for PhysCon, we ask you to help us make PhysCon a mega-success and make your donation to the CSTF.

Meeting 2012 PhysCon plenary speaker Freeman Dyson in the airport was an unexpected and welcome event. On top of that, seeing hundreds of physics major and their interesting projects was inspiring. —Prajwal Niraula, Saint Peter's University
The 2012 Congress opened my eyes to the wide number of opportunities our field holds. I realized that we learn a broad set of skills that are applicable in many professions. —Cory Schrandt, Iowa State University
At PhysCon 2012, I learned how competitive graduate school really is. I got insights on what to expect when applying to graduate programs, and was able to connect with people in industry to explore options outside academia. —Janeil Pinder, Florida Atlantic University
I loved the variety of workshops at PhysCon 2012—they gave insight to a lot of areas in physics in a hands-on manner, which was a refreshing complement to the science talks. —Audrey Burkart, Augustana College
PhysCon is a great place to network with the most amazing physics students in the country because they're all in one place. I was able to interact with many great, motivated students in an intimate environment. I made some great contacts and recruited one of my best students ever. — Lynde Ritzow, University of Oregon -  Master's Industrial Internship Program
My experiences at PhysCon 2012 served to boost my confidence, network base, and knowledge in my field of nano science. The poster award I received really helped in building my resume, and my career is well off for it. The award certificate is still proudly displayed. —Adeyemo Adetogun, North Carolina State University
Attending the 2012 Congress was one of the most influential weekends of my undergraduate career. I became more active in the physics community and am helping plan the 2016 SPS Congress. —Danielle Weiland, Carthage College
