Nominations and eligibility
The nomination deadline for FUTURE 2018 passed on August 31st, 2018. Details for the 2019 event will be announced in late Spring 2019.
The FUTURE participants are selected based on nominations from faculty for rising juniors and senior undergraduate women who are interested in pursuing a PhD in Physics. We do not accept direct applications from students. 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 2018 and have a demonstrated interest in physics research. We are committed to building a cohort that is diverse among multiple axes and strongly encourage nominations of women with identities that are historically underrepresented in physics. A group of ~30 women will be selected for the FUTURE program and will be notified via email during the first week of September.
Accommodations and travel
All travel and accommodations are provided for FUTURE.
Please feel free to contact us at FUTURE@caltech.edu with any questions about the program.
