Past Campaigns

Thank you to our donors who made the following campaigns a success.

21st Century Campaign
From 2006 - 2008, the APS 21st Century Campaign raised funds to improve science education, attract greater numbers of women and under-represented minorities to the sciences, and develop stronger ties between industry and academia.  The campaign exceeded its goal of $3.5 million with a final total of $4.3 million.

Edward A. Bouchet Award Endowment
The Bouchet Award lost its annual funding in 2012, so APS established a fundraising campaign to endow it. The campaign exceeded its goal of $140,000, raising a total of $151,000.

Campaign for Physics
The Campaign for Physics raised $5 million in support of science education at the K-12 level and beyond.

The APS Development Department spearheaded the effort to raise funds for a number of events and projects related to the APS Centennial in 1999.  The Centennial Campaign raised over $1 million.

Herman Feshbach Prize for Theoretical Nuclear Physics
The APS Council voted on March 31, 2012, to establish the Herman Feshbach Prize in Theoretical Nuclear Physics. The campaign surpassed its goal of $200,000 to fully endow the prize.

Deborah Jin Award for Outstanding Doctoral Thesis Research in Atomic, Molecular or Optical Physics
The award recognizes doctoral thesis research of outstanding quality and achievement in atomic, molecular, or optical physics and encourages effective written and oral presentation of research results.

Excellence in Physics Education Award (FEd)
This award aims to recognize and honor a team or group of individuals (such as a collaboration) or, exceptionally, a single individual, who have exhibited a sustained commitment to excellence in physics education.
