Funding available to undergraduates

The "Future Faces of Physics" Award--Outreach to underrepresented students in physics. Can the physics club and garage physics partner up to do a project to reach out to students in rural WI and show them the awesomeness of physics? Or to minority students in Milwaukee? Or young women in the Madison area? You get the idea. Deadline Oct 15 http://www.spsnational.org/programs/awards/futurefaces.htm

Society of Physics Students Marsh White Awards--Outreach to the general public like the WI Science Festival would qualify for this award. Deadline Nov 15 http://www.spsnational.org/programs/awards/white.htm

Undergraduate Research Award--for general research projects. If Garage Physics members ever decide to take on a bigger project, this is a great place to get the funds for it. Deadline Nov 15 UW Undergraduate Research Program: http://www.lssaa.wisc.edu/urs/research/index.html
