The 6th annual Southern California Physics Graduate Admissions Bootcamp is a two-day intensive workshop for students intending to apply for Physics PhD programs. The Bootcamp will introduce you to the graduate admissions process and help you prepare for the Physics GRE Subject Exam. The Bootcamp is open to all upper division physics majors and Master’s students in the Southern California region who intend to apply for PhD programs; we strongly encourage students from traditionally under-represented groups and those from CSU campuses and Community Colleges to attend.

The two-day camp costs $20, which includes presentations by faculty from regional PhD-awarding institutions, intensive workshops facilitated by graduate TAs, a graduate student panel, and all study materials. We will also provide accommodations for students traveling more than 50 miles/1 hour to reach UC San Diego (which includes all of Orange, LA and Riverside counties and northward).

Registration for the Bootcamp is now CLOSED.

If you are a Northern California student, please register for the NorCal Bootcamp at UC Davis (same dates); registration form is http://bit.ly/29i86BI

The Physics Graduate Admissions Bootcamps are organized by members of the California Professoriate for Access to Physics Careers, whose mission is to establish strong contacts between Physics faculty at the UCs and CSUs, and support and mentor underrepresented minority physics majors at these institutions in the pursuit of research and graduate degrees.

This year’s Southern California Bootcamp was made possible by the generous funding support of the UC San Diego Department of Physics, the UC San Diego Division of Physical Science, the UC San Diego Graduate Division, the UC San Diego Office of the Vice Chancellor for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, the APS Bridge Program, UC Davis and individual donors.
