India U.S. Travel Grants

Michele Irwin

Physicists and physics graduate students in India and the United States can apply for travel grants to pursue opportunities in the other country. This program is sponsored by the Indo-U.S. Science and Technology Forum (IUSSTF) and administered by the American Physical Society (APS).

The APS-IUSSTF Professorship Awards in Physics funds physicists in India or the United States wishing to visit overseas to teach short courses or provide a physics lecture series delivered at a U.S. or Indian university. Awards are up to U.S. $4,000.

Through the APS-IUSSTF Physics Student Visitation Program, U.S. and Indian graduate students may apply for travel funds of U.S. $3,000 to pursue opportunities in physics. The travel funds could be used to attend a short-course or summer institute, to work temporarily in a laboratory, or for another opportunity that the student and the host professor believe is worthy of support. The Physics Student Visitation Program aims to mostly support graduate student travel to India by U.S. citizens, while enabling some students of Indian citizenship to travel to the United States.

Further details about both programs, including proposal guidelines, are provided at

The deadline is 15 March 2011

Michele Irwin is the International Affairs Program Administrator
