Support Available for Student Travel to APS Meetings
The Braslau Family Travel Grant program provides support for degree-seeking students and early career physicists to attend an APS March or April Meeting. Grant amounts are based on the availability of resources, with special consideration given to students who lack personal or institutional financial support. Awards typically range from 500 to 1,000. Applications are open from November 11, 2019 to January 3, 2020. For more information visit the Braslau web page.
Communication and Negotiation Skills Seminar for Women
With support from the National Science Foundation, APS has trained women in physics to conduct professional skills seminars for students and postdocs at APS-sponsored meetings and at universities and institutions. Professional Skills Development Seminars are highly interactive workshops where participants will learn and practice communication and negotiation skills. For more information, please visit the Skills Seminar for Women page.
Give Future Physicists a STEP UP
STEP UP designs high school physics lessons that empower teachers, create cultural change, and inspire young women to pursue physics in college. With your help, we can make an even greater impact to prevent the loss of talented minds in physics. Please consider making a gift to help young minds discover new career pathways, recognize traditionally underrepresented people in physics, and sharpen problem-solving skills. Donations can be made at the STEP UP website.
