Women in Physics
The aim of NC State's Women in Physics group is to promote equity, with a focus on gender issues, within the Physics Department. We share expertise and experiences, and thereby gain tools and confidence to help us succeed in our educational and professional goals. We meet for regular outreach, career development, networking and social activities. We welcome people of all genders — cis, trans, and non-binary — in physics and related fields. The group maintains a resource room in 110 Riddick, where you can find a small library and a place to work.

To apply for this award, please send a CV, together with a short description of the conference and its impact on your career beyond what your current funding can provide, to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Ajmera Award” by Nov 1 of each year, for travel to take place during the following year.
