Click Here to Apply for the Student Travel Grant
Applications Open: Monday, June 28, 2021
Application Deadline: Friday, August 6, 2021
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 2021 annual meeting in Pittsburgh. This offer applies only to students who attend in-person and who presents their research at DPP 2021.
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 fill out this google form, or alternatively, email a one-page statement of need, motivating the request for a student travel grant, to the DPP 2021 Program Chair Denise Hinkel 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 2021 would benefit the student. The statement should thoroughly justify the student’s qualifications for a grant.
The application deadline is Friday, August 6, 2021.
Include the student’s information:
DPP Policy: An advisor 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 email message from the advisor should thoroughly justify the student's qualifications for a travel grant.
The selected student recipients will be informed by Monday, August 16, 2021.
