APS Programs rely in great part on donations from generous individuals like you. In addition to supporting programs, your donations can support the following prizes, awards, and grants.
Max Delbrück Prize in Biological Physics
The Max Delbrück Prize in Biological Physics is a biennial award that recognizes and encourages outstanding achievement in biological physics research. The prize, originally named the Biological Physics Prize, was established in 1981 by friends of the Division of Biological Physics (DBIO). In 2008, the prize was officially renamed to honor German-American biophysicist Max Delbrück.
Stuart Jay Freedman Award in Experimental Nuclear Physics
Dr. Stuart Jay Freedman, a distinguished experimental nuclear physicist, had a singular role in educating and mentoring graduate students and postdocs. The American Physical Society’s Division of Nuclear Physics (DNP) is pleased to establish an award in his honor to recognize Dr. Freedman’s legacy as a mentor to early career physicists. Please join in contributing to an endowment campaign that will allow the DNP to present the award in perpetuity.
DGRAV Student Travel Grants for APS April Meeting
The APS Division of Gravitational Physics (DGRAV) is raising funds to endow the DGRAV Student Travel Grants. First awarded in 1999, these grants provide needed travel support to allow DGRAV student members to present their work at the APS April Meeting. Please help foster the future of this field by donating to the endowment campaign.
