AIP Member Societies cover a broad range of fields in the physical sciences and collectively represent more than 120,000 scientists, engineers, educators and students in the global physical sciences community.
The American Physical Society (APS) is a non-profit membership organization working to advance and diffuse the knowledge of physics through its outstanding research journals, scientific meetings, and education, outreach, advocacy, and international activities.
Our purpose is to gather, inspire, guide, represent and celebrate all who share a passion for physics. And, in our role as a charity, we’re here to ensure that physics delivers on its exceptional potential to benefit society.
The Graduate Association of Physicists (GAP) is a new graduate student organization in the Georgia Tech School of Physics that aims to provide career development opportunities to physics PhD students, particularly those expecting to leave academia after graduating.
The Society of Physics Students is a social and an academic club that invites anyone with an interest in physics, maths, or science in general. Being a Physics major is not a requirement to join this club.
Organizations for women, PoC, and LGBTQ physicists
Both the APS and IOP have sections for women, PoC, and LGBTQ members.
This resource website has come out of a need for resources for gender and sexual minority (GSM) physicists. We serve as a networking resource for young GSM physicists and students to find mentors, a place to find resources for laboratories and universities to make their physics departments more GSM friendly, as well as a hosting of information of get togethers of GSM physicists and allies.
The Society seeks to develop and support efforts to increase opportunities for Hispanics in physics and to increase the number of practicing Hispanic physicists, particularly by encouraging Hispanic students to enter a career in physics.
