APS DPP Annual Meeting

Student Travel and Participation Grants

Applications Open: Wednesday, June 28, 2023
Application Deadline: Friday, July 28, 2023

This year the American Physical Society Division of Plasma Physics (APS DPP) is offering a limited number of student participation grants to enable DPP student participation at the 2023 annual meeting in Denver. This offer applies to students who participate and who present their research at DPP 2023.

Participation grant recipients must be currently enrolled in a Ph.D. program, or an undergraduate program at a U.S. or international institution and conducting cutting-edge research in plasma physics.

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

Advisors of prospective candidates should email a one-page statement of need, motivating the request for a student grant, to the DPP 2023 Program Chair Edward Thomas with a copy to the DPP Administrator Saralyn Stewart. The statement of need should include a brief description of the student’s research and how participation at DPP 2023 would benefit the student. The statement should thoroughly justify the student’s qualifications for a grant.

The application deadline is Friday, July 28, 2023.

Include the student’s information:
  • First Name and Family Name
  • Affiliation
  • Postal Mailing Address
  • Email Address
  • Presentation Title (denote oral or poster)

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

The selected student recipients will be informed by mid-August 2023.
