The Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) has partnered with the US Army Research Laboratories (ARL) to identify STEM faculty to participate in a 10-week summer research fellowship.  The research “campaigns” at the ARL are focused on the following topics:  Computational Sciences, Materials Research, Sciences for Maneuver, Information Sciences, Sciences-for-Lethality and Protection, Human Sciences, and Assessment

The work of a teacher is invaluable. In giving the gift of knowledge, educators not only prepare our next generation to face the challenges of tomorrow, but also provide opportunities for growth in personal development. With the increasing demands of society, outstanding science and math educators are key in closing the achievement gap and ensuring

2016 NAC students and mentors at the NAC IV Workshop at Howard University on September 9-11, 2016.

The National Astronomy Consortium (NAC) is a program led by the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) and Associated Universities Inc., (AUI) in partnership with the National Society of Black Physicists (NSBP),and a number of minority and majority universities to increase the number of students from underrepresented groups and those otherwise overlooked by the traditional academic

We would like to bring to your attention the Fermilab Intensity Frontier Fellowship opportunity.  The Intensity Frontier Fellowships are awarded to outstanding researchers in the areas of neutrino physics, muon physics, and other topics in the Intensity Frontier. Fellows will receive funding to allow enhanced participation in Fermilab experimental and data analysis efforts, in relevant areas

NASA Internships

NASA offers an Agency-wide college internship program that provides a 10-week summer and 16-week fall and spring paid internship opportunity for students pursuing degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM); and for students of non-STEM majors that lend support to the NASA mission. During their internship students work at the NASA Glenn Research Center

The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRF) is for currently open for applications. Current doctoral students who have approval of their dissertation topic and a formal dissertation committee are eligible. NIJ’s Graduate Research Fellowship (GRF) program supports doctoral students engaged in research that advances NIJ’s mission. The Graduate Research Fellowship in

The National Society of Black Physicists would like to recognize co-founder and former past-presidents, Dr. Sekazi Mtingwa on being selected as a shared recipient of the APS 2017 Robert R. Wilson Prize for Achievement in the Physics of Particle Accelerators.  Dr. Mtingwa’s commitment to physics has led to numerous other awards, including the 2015 Distinguished

Congratulations to NSBP member Dr. Chanda Prescod-Weinstein, a theoretical physics postdoc/axion wrangler of the University of Washington, Seattle, on being a 2016 FQXi Large Grant Awardee winner.  Dr. Prescod-Weinstein has been awarded 100K for the Project Title: “Epistemological Schemata of Astro|Physics: A Reconstruction of Observers” (Co-Investigator: Sarah Tuttle, University of Texas/University of Washington).  This award

Boulder School for Condensed Matter and Materials Physics July 3 – 28, 2017 Frustrated and Disordered Systems Disordered and frustrated systems comprise a vibrant research area in condensed matter physics with applications in fields ranging from mathematics to biology. At their core, these systems share universal features–such as rough free energy landscapes and rich sets of

Many years of effort and more than one thousand physicists have been focused on finding evidence of gravitational waves. Success was achieved on September 14, 2015 when gravitational waves were detected by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO) detectors located in Livingston, LA and Hanford, WA. The existence of gravitational waves is one of
