Evelyn and John Baugh Research Presentation Scholarship

Awards of up to $500 are available for undergraduate students with majors in the Physics Department and graduate students in the Physics Department to present their research at a conference. The presentation may be a poster or a talk.  Undergraduate recipients must present their work at the Physics Department’s Student Poster Session held each spring.  Graduate recipients must present their work at the Physics Department’s 3 Minute Thesis competition held each spring.   Before funds can be dispersed, recipients must write a thank you note to the donors. Applications should be sent to ryohay@fsu.edu and must include the following items:

  • a brief description of the work to be presented, including where it was done and who supervised it
  • an explanation of how attending the conference will benefit you
  • an itemized budget that includes transportation, lodging, registration, and meals
  • additional sources and amounts of funding that, along with the Baugh funds, would cover the full budget
  • a letter from an FSU faculty member supporting the application and taking responsibility for ensuring the student presents a poster during the next departmental poster session.

Applications will be assessed on a rolling basis, with the caveat that once a year’s funding is gone, no more applications for that year will be accepted. We are still accepting applications for this fiscal year.
