Application deadline: October 10, 2021
The Distinguished Student Program (DS) recognizes that bringing outstanding students to the annual APS meetings can be a career-changing experience.
The Forum on International Physics (FIP) and APS also recognize that funding available to the students is often insufficient to meet existing needs and opportunities.
The FIP and APS established the DS Program to provide outstanding Non-US students with financial support to participate in the APS Meetings to overcome these difficulties.
Non-US students (PhD and Master students), including those enrolled in US institutions or outside the US, are invited to apply for the DS travel grants to participate in the APS March or April Meeting 2022.
Successful applicants will be invited to the APS Meetings 2022 to present their work.
Applicants must be:
– Non-US citizen
– PhD or Master’s students, enrolled in the US or outside the US
– APS and FIP members.
If you are not an APS and/or FIP member, please apply for an APS membership and join the FIP. Students are eligible for one-year Free Trial Student APS Membership.
The DS travel award will cover the registration fees for the APS meetings 2022 and the following costs for traveling and lodging:
– up to $2000 to assist students enrolled in developing countries
– up to $500 to assist enrolled outside the US (not developing countries)
– up to $300 to assist students enrolled in the US
The costs will be reimbursed to the awardees after their participation to the meeting.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to the pandemic, in case of a virtual APS Meetings 2022, the DS program will provide ONLY the registration fees for the meeting and the DS awardees will be invited to present their work by giving a virtual talk at the APS Meeting 2022.
Applications should include the following items:
2. Motivation letter
3. A reference Letter
4. The abstract (~1,500 Characters) of the talk you wish to present to the APS Meeting 2022.
The deadline is October 10, 2021.
Only complete applications will be considered.
Students awarded by the DS program in the last years are not eligible.
If you have any questions, send an email to the DS Chair Program, Maria Longobardi (firstname.lastname@example.org).
