Michele Irwin

The Sociedade Brasileira de Física (SBF) and the American Physical Society (APS) are pleased to announce the launch of a new exchange program for physics graduate students and professors in the U.S. and Brazil.

Through the Brazil-U.S. Physics Student Visitation Program, graduate students can apply for travel funds to pursue a breadth of opportunities in physics, such as: 1) attending a short-course or summer institute; 2) visiting with a professor in his/her field of study; 3) working temporarily in a lab; or 4) any other opportunity that the student and professor feel is worthy of travel support. Grants are for up to USD $3,000.

The Brazil-U.S. Professorship/Lectureship Program funds physicists in Brazil and the United States wishing to visit overseas to teach a short course or deliver a lecture series in the other country. Grants are for up to USD $4,000.

The application deadline is 30 April 2011. Additional information about the program, including application guidelines, can be found at and Applications from U.S. applicants should be submitted to Michele Irwin, APS Office of International Affairs. Applications from Brazilian applicants should be submitted to Maria Beatriz Mattos, SBF.
