We will accept nominations for FUTURE 2020 in early July 2020. Additional details and a link to the nomination form are available here.
FUTURE 2020 will be held online on Tuesday, September 15, 2020, from 1 pm to 5:15 pm (PST). This year’s online/virtual conference will provide an introduction to life as a Caltech graduate student. Programming includes short science talks and “day in a life” discussions from current students, panels with current students and faculty covering topics ranging from challenges, research topics, building community, the application process, and more. There will also be an opportunity for questions and additional discussion in each session.
We welcome you to nominate your top rising Junior or Senior Undergraduate Women* (and/or Women* who are interested in pursuing a Physics PhD in the next 1-2 years) to participate in a one-day online/virtual event. Rising juniors should have an interest in pursuing a PhD in physics and motivation to learn more about graduate education and opportunities. Rising seniors should be planning to apply to graduate school in the Fall of 2020 and have a demonstrated interest in physics research. We prefer nominations from faculty but will also fully consider non-faculty and self-nominations. We are committed to building an inclusive cohort that recognizes and celebrates the diversity of students’ intersectional identities and experiences, and strongly encourage nominations of women of color and those historically underrepresented in physics.
There is no fee for participating in FUTURE 2020.
Nominations must be submitted by August 20, 2020.
