Stanford PIE Workshop

July 29-30, 2022

Overview

The Stanford Physics, Identity, and Equity (PIE) program is hosting a two-day summer workshop for undergraduate students. The workshop will provide participants a look at the major subfields of Physics, the academic environment, and possible career options with a Physics degree. Participants will have the opportunity to attend lab tours, talks and poster presentations, social events, a career panel, a CV/resume building workshop, and a summer research info session. They will also get to connect with Stanford graduate students and professors. This event is completely free of charge to participants; 1-night lodging, meals, and necessary transportation will be covered. To learn more about the program, check out the SPIEW Schedule.

Goals

  1. Introduce main subfields of Physics and the academic environment for Physics researchers
  2. Reveal the breadth of opportunity available to physics majors post-graduation.
  3. Provide key information for applying to Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) programs and graduate school.
  4. Build a community for underrepresented and first-generation students of physics in the Bay area. Strengthen professional connection with Stanford Physics graduate students and professors.

Eligibility

Must be a student currently enrolled in a community college or a 4-year institution in the Bay Area (within ~3-hour drive from Stanford) – or be participating in a summer program at Stanford. Program is open to all undergraduate students but early undergrads (who haven't declared a major in Physics), and students from disadvantaged backgrounds (female, underrepresented minority, and first generation/low income students) are especially encouraged to apply.
