What is the TEAM-UP Together Scholarship Program?
The TEAM-UP Together Scholarship Program launched in 2022 to help alleviate some of the financial barriers preventing Black and African American students from pursuing or completing physics and astronomy degrees.

By offering financial support to promising undergraduates, we seek to encourage more young Black and African American students to follow their passion for science.

Our scholarship program is generously funded by the Simons Foundation and Simons Foundation International, and is administered in coordination with the Society of Physics Students.

Awardees receive up to $10,000 per academic year and may reapply in subsequent academic years. Scholarship funds may be used for expenses that assist students in continuing or completing their undergraduate education, including tuition, enrollment fees, books, supplies, or equipment required for courses.

Awardees become automatic members of the national Society of Physics Students and gain access to professional development opportunities, mentoring, training, conference travel funding, and more through the TEAM-UP Together community.
