Following the initiative of the APS Forum on International Physics (FIP), the sponsors of the APS International Research Travel Award Program (IRTAP) recognize that funding for collaborations between developed and developing country scientists is often insufficient to meet existing needs and opportunities.
While the needs are great, and though we have only limited resources to stimulate growth of longer-term collaborations, we believe that an International Research Travel Award Program, even a modest one, may make a significant difference.
Promote international research collaborations between physicists in developed and developing countries.
Up to $2,000 U.S. for travel and lodging expenses for international travel while visiting a collaborator.
When rank-ordering applications, consideration will be given to:
Applications are submitted online and must include the following information:
The Executive Committee of FIP, with assistance from the Committee on International Scientific Affairs (CISA), the APS Office of International Affairs, and other sponsoring APS units, is responsible for managing the review process. Confidentiality of the reviews is assured.
Five awards are typically made twice a year for a total of ten awards per year.

FIP and CISA thank its funding partners for their support of this program. We also seek support of additional APS units. With additional funding, larger awards with broader aims and a relaxation on the restriction on APS membership are anticipated.
Nominees for and holders of APS Honors (prizes, awards, and fellowship) and official leadership positions are expected to meet standards of professional conduct and integrity as described in the APS Ethics Guidelines. Violations of these standards may disqualify people from consideration or lead to revocation of honors or removal from office.
