APS TRAVEL AWARD PROGRAM

APS TRAVEL AWARD PROGRAM

Award: $750 to $1,000
Deadline: April 30, 2017
Contact: Executive Office

APS is seeking applications for travel awards for the XXXVIII IUPS Congress in Rio de Janeiro scheduled for August 1 – 5, 2017.

An Awards Committee will screen the applications, and the awards will be made by APS, which is raising funds for the travel. The travel awards will be for $1,000 to help cover a portion of your airfare to Brazil.

The awards are intended for individuals whose funds for attending the Congress are limited. Federal employees are eligible. Applications from junior investigators (graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and junior faculty/researchers) are strongly encouraged. It is anticipated that more applications will be received than can be funded.  Notification of awards will come in two phases, an initial group of applicants funded in the spring and another group notified during the summer, just prior to the Congress.

To achieve as high a rank as possible, the following factors should be considered:

  • Complete all questions on the application.
  • Provide copies of letters of invitation if you have been invited to the Congress to make a presentation.
  • Provide an indication of participation in the Congress, including presentations and attendance for most or all sessions.
  • Have travel plans that include other professional visits or work.

The deadline for submissions of applications for travel awards is April 30, 2017. The application is available through the APS online award module.
