The J. Robert Oppenheimer Memorial Committee is a nonprofit organization that honors the intellectual and ethical legacy of the Scientific Director of the Manhattan Project. Since 1971 we have been sponsoring annual lectures in Los Alamos, New Mexico, by internationally significant speakers, providing academic scholarships to students from Los Alamos, Pojoaque, and Santa Fe high schools, and promoting science education in other ways in the community.
The JROMC membership of up to twenty-five community members maintains the five-decade traditions of the organization while moving forward with new activities. The Committee owns a significant archive of historic photographs and other documents. We worked for years to get Oppenheimer’s security clearance reinstated posthumously.
We welcome your donations and participation.
