Optics and Photonics Benefits: Student Services
OSA student member benefits support your academic studies, power your research and provide opportunities that will propel your career in optics and photonics.
OSA has an extensive global network of more than 360 Student Chapters (88 in the U.S. and 272 non-U.S.). These chapters, managed for and by students, create valuable opportunities and help foster lasting relationships with peers and mentors.
If your university already has a chapter, we encourage you to become an active member. If your school does not yet have a chapter, we invite you to consider establishing one.
OSA Student Chapters receive many benefits including: activity and travel grants, guest lecture resources, networking opportunities, and much more!
