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.

Emergency Support mini-grants support individual GPER members who are facing unanticipated financial challenges.
