The SPS derives most of its support from the American Institute of Physics (AIP). SPS dues are also an important contributor. These regular, budgeted sources of revenue make possible the SPS publications and programs that are available to SPS members.
The Awards and Scholarship Programs of SPS are made possible, in part, through the generous contributions os Sigma Pi Sigma members and friends. Scholarships and Awards are supported by income derived from designated funds that have been provided as gifts. In this way, the physics alumni, and especially Sigma Pi Sigma members, contribute to the generations of students who follow them.
