55th Annual Meeting of the APS Division of Plasma Physics
November 11-15, 2013 • Denver, Colorado
Student Travel Grants
Application Deadline: Friday, August 17, 2012
This year the American Physical Society-Division of Plasma Physics (APS-DPP) is offering a limited number of student travel grants of up to $1,000 each to enable graduate student participation at the 2012 DPP annual meeting in Providence. As funds allow, a limited number of highly qualified undergraduate students will also be considered for these grants.
Student travel support recipients must be currently enrolled in a Ph.D. program or high school program at a U.S. or international institution and conducting cutting-edge research in plasma physics. Advisors of prospective candidates should send a short (no more than one-page) email message motivating the request for this scholarship to the 2012 Program Chair Fred Skiff (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a copy to Saralyn Stewart (email@example.com) by Friday, August 17, 2012.
The letter should include a brief description of the student's research and how participation at this year's APS-DPP annual meeting would benefit the student. Include the following:
- First Name and Family Name
- Mailing Address
- Email Address
- Presentation Title (oral or poster)
It is DPP policy to support one student per advisor. It is expected that a travel grant will only be requested for a student who could not attend the conference without one. The selected recipients will be informed by Friday, August 24, 2012.
