To provide immediate support to students who are negatively impacted by COVID-19, through the support of the American Institute of Physics, SPS will grant up to $1,000 scholarships to students who need assistance with costs directly related to their education, such as tuition, fees, housing, and books because of the financial effects due to COVID. Learn more and apply here

Graduate Admissions Webinar Series:​

Princeton Physics Ambassadors has some exciting opportunities to prepare undergraduate physicists interested in applying to grad school. They are running a series of two admissions webinars this Fal land have opened the application for our Prospective Physics PhD Preview (P4) Scholars Program.  


Grad App Strategies (11/2/21 @ 5PM ET)

​Are you currently applying to physics graduate schools? Will you apply in subsequent admissions cycles? If so, this webinar is for you! Join us as we discuss general strategies to identify promising physics graduate programs and organize application materials. We’ll highlight examples specific to the Princeton Physics admissions process along the way, concluding with a Q&A session open to all webinar participants. Note that this is the second of three seminars in the Princeton Physics Ambassadors “Grad Apps Webinar Series.” Register here:

CVs and Statements of Purpose (11/19/21 @ 4PM ET)

Are you working to summarize your physics background in a resume, curriculum vitae (CV), or statement of purpose (SoP)? Are you hoping to get a head start in preparing these documents for a future graduate ​admissions cycle? If so, this webinar is for you! Join us as we discuss what it takes to put your best foot forward with these “summary documents.” We’ll cover general strategies and highlight information specific to Princeton Physics, concluding with a Q&A and breakout session to workshop specific examples.

Prospective Physics PhD Preview (P4)

Princeton Physics would like to invite you to apply for the P4 (Prospective Physics PhD Preview) program, a workshop organized by the Princeton Physics Ambassadors. P4 will focus on giving you the tools to engage in physics research, identify your ideal graduate programs, and develop a competitive graduate application. Along the way, the P4 Scholars will interact with graduate students, postdocs, and faculty from Princeton’s Physics Department. The workshop will run between January 28-30th, 2022.

To be eligible for P4, you must currently be in your freshman, sophomore, or junior undergraduate year. P4 Scholars will be selected to represent a diverse set of backgrounds and interests. Sophomores and juniors with a strong interest in physics will be prioritized, particularly those who are struggling to overcome barriers (systematic or otherwise) in their path through physics. We especially welcome students from historically underrepresented groups to apply for this program. 

To apply, please submit this form by 11:59PM ET on Sunday, November 7th

Click Here to Apply!

Portions of the P4 program will be publicly broadcasted; to receive an invitation to this public programming, you only need to fill out the first section of this form. To apply to be a P4 Scholar and participate in live workshops with members of the Princeton Physics community, please complete all sections of this form.
