Application Deadline: Friday, September 4, 2020This year APS-DPP is offering a limited number of grants to enable student participation in the 2020 APS-DPP Virtual Meeting. Grants could cover expenses such as internet connection fees, equipment needed to enable virtual audio/video presentation, or even meeting registration fees.
This offer applies only to students presenting at the DPP meeting. Grant recipients must have conducted cutting-edge research in plasma physics while enrolled in a high school, undergraduate, or Ph.D. program at a U.S. or international institution.
How to Apply
The application deadline is Friday, September 4, 2020. The selected student recipients will be informed by Friday, September 18, 2020.
The application should be completed by advisors of prospective candidates. Advisors should submit a one-page statement motivating the request for a student grant. Text should be entered under "Statement of Need" on the application form. The statement should include a brief description of the student's research and how participation at DPP 2020 would benefit the student. The statement should thoroughly justify the student's qualifications for a grant.
The application also requires the student’s information:
- Email Address
- Mailing Address
- Presentation Title (denote oral or poster)
DPP Policy: Advisors must apply for only one student and a request is appropriate only if the student would not attend, or have difficulty attending, without a grant. A student who is first-author is more likely to receive an award than a student coauthor.
