Braslau Family Travel Grant

The Braslau Family Travel Grant provides support for degree-seeking students and early career physicists to attend an APS March or April Meeting. Established in 2016 by David Braslau, this grant honors his brothers Norman and Robert Braslau—both accomplished scientists with distinguished careers in physics and systems engineering. The Braslau Travel Grant helps students overcome financial barriers to benefit from the professional and academic interactions of a scientific meeting.
