Giving to the School

The School of Physics is honored to receive support from loyal alumni, faculty, staff, parents, and friends of Georgia Tech as well as corporations and private foundations. The School is building a solid reputation in science, teaching, and research; we must continue to attract the best and the brightest faculty and students, and to hold our place at the leading edge of discoveries. Private support for the School’s programs and services is essential, and financial support is always welcome.

  5. Endowments supporting the creation of seminar series so that our students, faculty, and postdocs have greater opportunities to meet and learn from leading scientists
