There is opportunity to edit a submitted application during the same session. Send any inquiry to the Secretary/Treasurer: joseph.tan@nist.gov.

Selected Students

Students who are selected to receive travel grants will be asked to transmit their U.S. Social Security number (or Tax Payer ID number) directly to the American Physical Society in a secure method. DO NOT email the ID information to anyone. Instructions will be provided in the award notification from the Secretary/Treasurer.

DAMOP Travel Grant Policies

Applications ignoring the following policies are discouraged:

  • Awarding is typically constrained by limited funds. DAMOP policy is to support one student per advisor. If more than one student from the same group/advisor are applying for support, each student should indicate his relative priority in the application form. "Priority 1" is the highest and should be used if there is only one eligible applicant from the group.
  • Priority is given to students who have not received travel support for the last three Regular Meetings and who will be presenting a talk or poster of sufficient quality.
  • Priority is given to students who fill out the application form with clear and consistent information free of errors.
