The Department of Physics at Duke University has benefited greatly from philanthropic donations in support of our educational and research missions. These donations have come from alumni, faculty, companies, foundations, and other parties interested in advancing the study of physics and other natural sciences at Duke. For example, the newly constructed French Family Science Center, which houses part of Physics, was funded in part by a large gift to the University from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Other gifts include donations to departmental endowments that support physics graduate and undergraduate students through fellowships and scholarships, as well as through educational development initiatives. Examples of such gifts include an anonymous donation to endow a full professorship in experimental condensed matter physics, the newly created graduate fellowship endowed by the the family of Alfred T.
