The American Physical Society Physics Education Research Topical Group (GPER) is committed to supporting APS members who advance and enrich research in physics education. To support APS GPER members, we offer three types of mini-grants.

GPER Mini-Grants: Conference Support 

Conference Support mini-grants provide support for GPER members to share physics education research findings with the physics community (e.g., travel, registration costs, workshop costs, poster printing, etc.).
