Tuesday, October 4, 2022, 1-2:30pm (virtual)Students applying to graduate school seldom know about all of the fellowship opportunities available for them. Fellowships help cover tuition, sometimes provide extra stipends, give you more research and academic freedom when entering grad school, give you proposal writing experience, and, in general, look good on a CV. The APS-DPP Education and Outreach Committee hosts an annual Graduate Opportunities Panel which features program managers and recipients of fellowships and awards available for graduate students in plasma sciences from the National Science Foundation (plasma physics at NSF can be found both in the Mathematical & Physical Sciences and the Atmospheric and Geospace Sciences divisions), Department of Energy Office of Science, Fulbright program, National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship, NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowships, Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration, GEM Fellowship, etc.Find the 2022 Graduate Opportunities Panel slides here.Click here to watch the recorded 2022 panel
Wednesday, November 1, 2023 (in-person) Denver, ColoradoMore Info & RegistrationPlasma Science Teacher Day is a day of free professional development workshops for teachers to learn about plasma physics research and ways to incorporate plasma lessons and activities in the classroom. These "real-life" topics, seldom found in conventional classroom discussions or in school textbooks, provide tools to help teachers inspire students to understand the research challenges of plasma science and related applications. The workshop presentations, handouts, and classroom resource materials are designed especially for middle and high school teachers and targeted to satisfy state and national standards.Read more: Why Teach Plasma Physics?
