Nominations for FUTURE 2022 will open June 22nd 2022 and close August 1st 2022. Additional details are provided on this page. Follow this link to the 2022 nomination form
FUTURE 2022 will be held on the Caltech campus on Monday and Tuesday, September 12-13, 2022. This year’s conference will provide an in-depth look into life as a Physics graduate student through a series of presentations, discussion panels, mini-workshops and informal socials with Caltech faculty and students. Topics will include choosing a research direction, building community, challenges facing women*, 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 most promising 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 FUTURE, a two-day, all-expenses paid, event at Caltech from September 12 – 13, 2022. 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 2022 and have a demonstrated interest in physics research. We prefer nominations from faculty but will also fully consider non-faculty and self-nominations. This program is designed to support students who identify as Women* but we encourage nominations of any students that would benefit from our program emphasizing women in physics and STEM. 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 Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) students, students with minoritized identities of gender, and those historically excluded in physics.
There is no fee for participating in FUTURE 2022. All costs, including domestic travel, will be paid by the program.
Nominations must be submitted by August 1, 2022.
* We use a fluid definition of “woman” that is inclusive of trans and genderqueer women, femmes, and gender non-confirming/non-binary students.
