The APS recognizes that bringing outstanding young researchers to the annual APS meetings can be a career-changing experience.
Since 2015, the APS and Forum on International Physics (FIP) established the Distinguished Student Program (DS) to provide outstanding non-US young researchers with financial support to participate in the APS Meetings.
The Forum for Early Career Scientists (FECS) also recognizes this opportunity and the need for financial support for young researchers.
For this reason, we are happy to announce that the FECS will co-sponsor the DS in 2023, enabling postdocs to participate in the DS.
