Apply for Awards

A limited number of Travel Awards in the amount of $200 will be offered to help fund SPS members presenting their research at PhysCon.

Eligibility

  • Applicants must be undergraduate students at the time of the meeting
  • Applicants must be members of the SPS National Organization
  • Applicants must submit an abstract and present a poster at PhysCon

Applications Procedure

Applications are due by October 11, 2019. The application will ask you to provide the title of your poster and a statement stating why you would like to attend PhysCon. The application also requires a certification from an advisor or academic mentor that the applicant is in good standing with the department; the online application will guide applicants through the process of requesting this certification.

Award Details

If you receive a Travel Award, you are required to acknowledge the support that you received by including an SPS logo on your poster. You will also be required to submit a W-9 form (or equivalent). The award check will be mailed within 30 days after PhysCon after verification of your attendance. A student may not receive both a Travel Award and a Chapter Reporter Award.

Program Support

The PhysCon Travel Award is funded, in part, by the generosity of Sigma Pi Sigma members through donations. To donate to Sigma Pi Sigma and the PhysCon Student Travel Fund, visit: https://donate.aip.org/
