The Division of Gravitational Physics (DGRAV) will offer travel grants to support the attendance of graduate students or advanced undergraduate students at the APS April Meeting that will be held April 9–12 in New York, NY. This year, we plan to additionally include grants to support registration costs for those presenting virtually, as funds allow.

The amount of each travel grant will be approximately $300. Virtual grants will cover Early registration rates. All students who are members of the Division of Gravitational Physics and who are giving talks or presenting posters at the meeting are eligible for grants. Preference will be given to applicants who have not received travel grant support to the APS April Meeting from the division in the past, but all participating DGRAV students are encouraged to submit applications.

The application will request the name and email for a person (Supervisor/Advisor) who can provide a brief (1 sentence) statement of support.

The deadline for applications is February 10, 2022.

Please contact DGRAV Secretary/Treasurer, Jocelyn Read if you have any questions.


Nominees for and holders of APS Honors (prizes, awards, and fellowship) and official leadership positions are expected to meet standards of professional conduct and integrity as described in the APS Ethics Guidelines. Violations of these standards may disqualify people from consideration or lead to revocation of honors or removal from office.
