The Marshak Lectureship, endowed by Ruth Marshak in honor of her late husband and former APS president, Robert Marshak, is to provide travel support for physicists from "developing nations or the Eastern Bloc" invited to speak at APS meetings. APS units and committees that organize sessions at the APS March and April Meetings are invited each fall to submit nominations for the Marshak Lectureship.
