Deadline Extended: TEAM-UP Together Scholarship Application
The deadline for The TEAM-UP Together Scholarship Program has been extended to 7 April 2023.
The TEAM-UP Together Scholarship Program is underway and will continue to accept applications for its next round of need-based scholarships until 7 April 2023. The scholarship program is one of TEAM-UP Together’s strategies aimed at doubling the number of African Americans earning bachelor’s degrees in physics and astronomy by 2030. The awards of $10,000 per academic year are to be used for tuition, fees, or supplies.
In December 2022, the TEAM-UP Together Scholarship Program selected its first cohort of 31 scholars. The application for the next round opened in November 2022, closes on 7 April 2023, and will culminate in another cohort of scholars announced this summer.
ABOUT TEAM-UP TOGETHER
TEAM-UP Together is a collective action initiative led by the American Institute of Physics, American Association of Physics Teachers, American Astronomical Society, American Physical Society, and the Society of Physics Students to address the disproportionate underrepresentation of African American undergraduate students in physics and astronomy. This effort aims to provide financial support to African American students and to support the scientific community in doubling the number of African American students earning physics and astronomy bachelor’s degrees annually by 2030. The program is funded by a $12.5 million grant from the Simons Foundation and Simons Foundation International. To learn more, check out teamuptogether.org.
