To indicate your interest in PhysFest, please fill out the Interest Form. Participants must also apply for admission to Seattle University by January 15th, 2013. We will select invitiees from those who have completed both the interest form and their SU admissions application after that time. (An invitation to participate in PhysFest does not necessarily imply admission to Seattle University.)
Thanks to a $582,000 grant from the National Science Foundation, the Physics Department will once again be able to offer scholarships to a few incoming physics majors. Scholarships will be awarded competitively based on a combination of academic merit and financial need. To be considered for a Boscovich Scholarship, applicants need not attend PhysFest, but must declare physics as their intended major.

Friday evening, participants will meet their student hosts, then enjoy a reception and dinner with the physics faculty and students followed by a brief orientation and tour of the physics department and facilities. Saturday is a packed day of physics activities featuring six to eight experiments across a variety of subjects, with breakfast, lunch, and snacks provided. The official workshop ends around 4:45 pm, but participants may arrange to stay with their host student an extra night to explore the rich cultural and social experiences offered in this Pacific-rim city.

We want to show you how enriching and interesting a physics education at Seattle University can be! Our excellent program boasts great teachers and opportunities to collaborate on frontier research, and our faculty, staff, and students form a close-knit and supportive community of scholars. Our students receive excellent preparation for graduate school or technical careers in teaching, engineering, or research, and in the meantime enjoy spending their college years in the beautiful, vibrant city of Seattle. SU PhysFest is designed to give you a close look at what we have to offer and a sense of what studying physics here would be like. We are confident you will like what you see, and we hope that many who attend will choose to enroll in physics at Seattle University.
Please contact Dr. Paul Fontana with questions about PhysFest.
