Membership Assistance Fund Established

The American Physical Society announces the availability of a membership assistance fund for recently retired physicists or new immigrants to the United States. According to Judy Franz, Executive Officer of the APS, the fund was made possible by a private donation specifically for needy retired physicists or transplanted physicists "...who have no access to physics at present, but have contributed over the years and still have a love of the subject." [Note that APS members of at least 10 years who retire may already choose a reduced dues rate on their annual renewal invoice.] Assistance for APS dues and meeting registration fees will be given on a case-by-case basis as long as the fund exists.

Nominations for qualified individuals or contributions to the fund should be sent to: Barrett H. Ripin, Associate Executive Officer, The American Physical Society, One Physics Ellipse, College Park, MD 20740-3844

APS encourages the redistribution of the materials included in this newspaper provided that attribution to the source is noted and the materials are not truncated or changed.
