Support the Francis M. Pipkin Award Endowment

Advance exceptional research accomplishments by an early career scientist in the interdisciplinary area of precision measurement and fundamental constants.

Your gift supports early career scientists' research

The Francis M. Pipkin Award recognizes exceptional research accomplishments by an early career scientist in the interdisciplinary area of precision measurement and fundamental constants. The award also encourages the wide dissemination of the research results.

The award currently includes a $3,000 stipend, and your generous support will allow us to increase this stipend to $5,000, making it on par with other APS early career awards.
