Make a Gift to the Department of Physics

The Physics program at Tennessee Tech attracts exceptional students from across the state, and beyond, who go on to establish outstanding careers in science, industry, and many other areas. Several different scholarships provide much-needed support for these students throughout their undergraduate studies, as they work hard to develop their theoretical and practical skills. However, more support is always needed to attract more students to the program and support them while they are here.
