APS Minority Scholarship


The APS Minority Scholarship Program has been suspended until further notice. APS is in the process of developing a new program aimed at minority physics majors.

Please note: If you were a first time recipient of this scholarship in 2014-2015, you will have the opportunity to apply for renewal for the 2015-2016 academic year in November 2014. Information will be sent to those who are eligible.


The APS Minority Scholarship helps increase the number of under-represented minorities obtaining degrees in physics. It provides funding and mentoring to minority physics students, helping them enhance their education and successfully prepare for a variety of careers.

The Scholarship was started in 1980. The program, through the generosity of corporate and individual donors, has graduated students who have received their PhDs in physics and are now working as physics faculty members in universities, as well as research scientists at corporations and national labs. Some past scholars have also become high school physics teachers.
