Be a part of the growth of Physics & Astronomy in Wyoming by contributing financially to support students in their professional development. $100, $50, or $25 for a student scholarship makes a big difference to a physics student struggling to buy books and pay tuition. The Department also has larger projects on the horizon, including equipping the WIRO telescope with world-class instruments to enable out-of-this-world discoveries. Contact Dept. Head Danny Dale to learn about more opportunities to participate in the science and educational mission of the Department.
