    Give to the Fordham Parents Fund

"After my son's summer research experience, I felt compelled to make a gift to Fordham. If my gift can afford even one student the opportunity he had, I will feel most gratified. My son flourished in the supportive environment the Department of Physics provided, allowing him independent study under a respected mentor in the discipline he loves: quantum physics. This could not have happened without financial support. I want to be sure that students like him are never discouraged from pursuing inspired research because of limited funds."
