GPER Mini-Grants: Conference Support and Personal Support

The American Physical Society Physics Education Research Topical Group (GPER) is committed to supporting APS members who advance and enrich research in physics education. The Mini-Grants are divided into two strands – Conference Support for the Physics Education Community (Strand 1) and Personal Support (Strand 2). Historically, the GPER Mini-Grants have provided travel support for physics education researchers. Additionally, we’re continuing a special second strand for personal support, in response to the multiple crises that present numerous personal, professional, and educational challenges.
