61st Annual Meeting of the APS Division of Plasma Physics
October 21-25, 2019 • Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Student Travel Grant

Application Deadline: Wednesday, August 7, 2019

This year the American Physical Society Division of Plasma Physics (APS DPP) is offering a limited number of student travel grants to enable DPP student participation at the 2019 annual meeting in Ft. Lauderdale. This offer applies only to students presenting at the DPP annual meeting.

If funds allow, a few highly qualified undergraduate students will also be considered for a DPP travel grant.

Travel grant recipients must be currently enrolled in a Ph.D. program, or high school program, at a U.S. or international institution and conducting cutting-edge research in plasma physics. Advisors of prospective candidates should send a one-page email message motivating the request for a student travel grant to the DPP 2019 Program Chair Ellen Zweibel with a copy to the DPP Administrator Saralyn Stewart.

The application deadline is Wednesday, August 7, 2019.

The email message should include a brief description of the student's research and how participation at DPP 2019 would benefit the student. Include the student’s information:

  • First Name and Family Name
  • Affiliation
  • Mailing Address
  • Email Address
  • Presentation Title (denote oral or poster)

DPP Policy: advisors must apply for only one student and a request is appropriate only if the student would not attend, or have difficulty attending, without a student travel grant. A student who is first-author is more likely to receive an award than a student coauthor. The advisor’s email message should thoroughly justify the student's qualifications for a travel grant.

The selected student recipients will be informed by Friday, August 16, 2019.
