Program Support

The awards and scholarship programs of SPS are made possible, in large part, through the generous contributions of Sigma Pi Sigma members and friends. In this way, the physics alumni, and especially Sigma Pi Sigma members, contribute to the generations of students who follow them.

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 additional programs that are available to SPS members.

The Nucleus Scholarship Clearinghouse
