DPP Grants

The American Physical Society (APS) and the American Physical Society Division of Plasma Physics (APS-DPP) offer several grants.
 

Nominees and award and officeholders are expected to meet standards of professional conduct and integrity as described in the APS Ethics Guidelines. Violations of these standards may disqualify people from consideration or lead to revocation of honors or removal from office.

DPP Student Participation Grant

Application Deadline: Wednesday, 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.

The application deadline is Wednesday, August 6, 2021. 

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 in the DPP conference would benefit the student. The statement should thoroughly justify the student's qualifications for a grant.

The application also requires the student’s information:

  • Name
  • Affiliation
  • 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.
