The Distinguished Student Program (DS) recognizes that bringing outstanding students to the annual APS meetings can be a career-changing experience.
The Forum on International Physics (FIP) and APS also recognize that funding available to the students is often insufficient to meet existing needs and opportunities. The FIP and APS established the DS Program to provide outstanding Non-US students with financial support to participate in the APS Meetings to overcome these difficulties.
Non-US students (Ph.D. and Master students), including those enrolled in US institutions or outside the US, are invited to apply for the DS travel grants to participate in the APS March or April Meeting 2022.
Successful applicants will be invited to the APS Meetings 2022 to present their work.
Applicants must be:

See how to join the APS and how to join FIP.
Applicants must be both an APS and FIP member.
If you are not an APS and/or FIP member, please apply for an APS membership and join the FIP.
