Travel Support for Young Scientists

Each year, the Topical Group provides partial travel support to graduate students and post-docs to present contributed papers at scientific meetings in the area of precision measurement and fundamental constants. Support is available to attend either the GMPFC regular annual meeting, which normally alternates between the April APS meeting and the DAMOP meeting, or any other meeting in which GMPFC is sponsoring a contributed session.

To be eligible for support, the applicant must (1) be a graduate student or postdoc at a college, university, or national laboratory and engaged in research in the area of precision measurements and fundamental constants; (2) be a member in good standing of the APS and GMPFC; and (3) have submitted an abstract to present a contributed talk or poster in a session of the regular meeting, or in a GPMFC-sponsored session of another meeting.

To apply, send a request by email to the Secretary-Treasurer of the Topical Group, with a copy of your abstract attached, by the deadline of March 1, 2016 for submitting abstracts to the meeting. If you are also applying for support from another APS unit, please state that in your application. Support is limited to a maximum of $600 per traveler. If the number of applicants exceeds the available funds, preference will be given to the earliest applicants.
