Student Travel and Participation Grants

Applications Open: Wednesday, June 12, 2024

Application Deadline: Friday, July 12, 2024

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 during the 2024 annual meeting in Atlanta. This offer applies to students who participate and who present their research at DPP 2024.

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 U.S. high school 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 2024 Program Chair Cameron Geddes 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 2024 will benefit the student. The statement should thoroughly justify the student’s qualifications for a grant.

The application deadline is Friday, July 12, 2024.

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 without a student grant or have difficulty participating. A student who is first author is more likely to receive a grant than a student coauthor. The advisor’s email message should thoroughly justify the student's qualifications for a travel grant.

The selected student grant recipients will be informed around the end of July 2024.
