DNP is pleased to offer a limited number of travel grants to encourage graduate student participation in the 2025 APS joint March and April Meeting to be held in Anaheim, California from March 17-20, 2025. This APS meeting provides an excellent opportunity for students in nuclear physics to present their research, interact with potential employers, and hear about advances in a broad range of physics topics.

Rules and Eligibility:

The nominee must be a DNP member (free to join for APS members).

Nomination and Selection Process:

The nominee's completed application and advisor's supporting letter are also required for consideration.

If the nominee's application is accepted, the award will cover the early registration fee for students presenting in-person in Anaheim. Applications are due by February 15, 2025. Students should apply using the form below.

For more information, contact the DNP Secretary-Treasurer Ramona Vogt.

Please see our PhysTEC Network Request for Proposals for more details on the proposal requirements.

The process for submitting a PhysTEC Network proposal is as follows.

  1. Submit a pre-proposal by June 30, 2024 at 5 p.m. submitter’s local time. 
  2. Based on your pre-proposal submission, we will schedule a pre-proposal meeting with your team. If you miss the deadline for the pre-proposal form, please email phystec@aps.org to request a pre-proposal meeting. Full proposals will not be accepted without engaging in a pre-proposal meeting.
  3. Submit a full proposal by September 13, 2024 at 5 p.m. submitter’s local time. 

We plan to fund up to 2 Networks, and the total funding available for this RFP is $202,500.

For any questions or consultation requests during the request for proposal cycle, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at phystec@aps.org. Our dedicated PhysTEC staff are here to assist you in strengthening physics teacher education in your area. We look forward to receiving your proposals and working together to shape the future of physics education.

Recognition Details & Expectations of Programs

The IUPE award will recognize up to three programs each year and will focus on entire undergraduate physics programs rather than individual members of a department. The COE seeks to recognize improvement and success at all types of institutions, ranging from large research universities to small colleges. Applications will be judged within the appropriate context to the greatest extent possible.  

It is neither expected nor required that any given program will exhibit improvement in all of the applicant program achievements described on the Award for Improving Undergraduate Physics Education web page.  It is expected that recognized programs will have excelled in one or more of those areas.

Please complete the form below with relevant data and attach your narrative, supplementary materials and supporting letters, as a single PDF:

Your two- to three-page narrative should include:

  • A clear outline of the improvements and achievements for which the program is seeking recognition.
  • A description of the overall undergraduate physics program at the institution, including the curriculum at both the introductory and upper-division levels, the student populations served, any regional factors, resources and facilities, and other information that is relevant to establishing the excellence of the program.
  • A summary of relevant data and documentary evidence to support claims of improvement, transformation in the program, growth, impact, and other successes for which the program is seeking recognition. Data provided should show evidence that improvements have been sustained over a period of at least a few years

Supplementary materials (of up to 10 pages) will be accepted, but the two to three page narrative should describe programmatic efforts completely, independent of supplements.

Additional supporting letters may be included but are not required.

If you have any questions please email the APS Education Department.

Please use this form to submit satellite events for any 2024 APS Meeting. Completion of this form before the specified deadline is REQUIRED for your event to be included on the Meeting website and in its marketing.
 

Please provide one entry for EACH event, and be as detailed as possible as you complete the form.  

Please see the following deadline dates below for each APS Meeting:
 

Deadline to submit for March Meeting: January 26, 2024

Deadline to submit for April Meeting: February 26, 2024

Deadline to submit for DAMOP Meeting: May 3, 2024

Deadline to submit for DPP Meeting: August 30, 2024

Deadline to submit for DFD Meeting: TBD

Deadline to submit for SCCM 2025 Meeting: January 17, 2025

Deadline to submit for GEC Meeting: May 3, 2024

   An APS Meetings staff member will contact you within 48 hours of receiving your request to schedule a consultation.

DEADLINE: Friday, August 2, 2024


This is an application for the APS Career Mentoring Fellows program and should take about 25-30 minutes to fill out. A selection committee of APS volunteers and staff will review all applications and select candidates based on this rubric.


If admitted to the program as a CM Fellow, you will have the opportunity to do one or more of the following:
 - Gain expertise as a career mentor and learn about APS Career resources,
 - Receive implicit bias and mentorship training,
 - Attend an APS conference* to provide feedback on student presentations and/or participate in the career and résumé help desk,
 - Receive training on giving a career talk,
 - Give a career talk at an institution or conference to raise awareness about diverse physics careers and APS career resources.


*CM Fellows currently participate in the APS Division of Plasma Physics Meeting, March Meeting or April Meeting; Fellows who participate in conference activities are eligible to receive compensated meeting registration and partial travel funding.
