Relatively speaking, there’s only one thing more exciting than predicting gravitational waves… Sending students to PhysCon.

Support the Society of Physics Students and ΣΠΣ.

Your gift helps undergraduate physics students make waves through research, outreach, public policy, and professional development opportunities.

This year, funds raised through our Einstein's Birthday campaign will help fund students to participate in the Physics Congress.


See how students celebrated the legacy of Einstein at the at the 2016 Quadrennial Physics Congress. Click on the photos to learn more.

"By far the most valuable thing I took from PhysCon 2016 is the network of connections I built there. I am touched by the amount of support I received at PhysCon—support both for my research project and for my future as a physicist.” —Kristine Romich, City Colleges of Chicago
"I got a couple of opportunities to speak to Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell individually, where we bonded over our experiences as women in a male-dominated field." —Elizabeth Pham, Chico State
“The workshops were my favorite part of the PhysCon2016 experience. I was able interact with my colleagues from SPS chapters around the country … the teamwork that happened during the activities brought us all together with a common purpose.” —Jaclynn Lewis, Texas Lutheran University
"The highlight of PhysCon was my tour of SLAC. Operated by Stanford University, the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory has made several remarkable breakthroughs in precisely the areas of physics I’m enthralled by!" —Kathleen Hamilton, Howard Community College
