Physics Congress Underrepresented Student Travel Award
If you are a student traditionally underrepresented in physics or astronomy and are willing to present a poster at PhysCon, you can qualify for a limited number of travel awards that cover your registration, travel, and lodging for the 2022 Physics Congress! Award recipients are required to provide a 500-word write-up and two photos or 2 short 60-second videos about their experience at the 2022 Physics Congress.
Applicants must be undergraduate physics, astronomy, or related major students at the time of the meeting
Applicants must submit an abstract and present a poster at the 2022 Physics Congress.
Awarded to undergraduate students who are from a group that is underrepresented in science and engineering.
The Physics Congress Underrepresented Student Travel Award is first-come, first-serve, and applications are accepted on a rolling basis. The application requires a certification from an advisor or academic mentor that the applicants are in good standing with the department; the online application will guide applicants through the process of requesting this certification.
If you receive a Physics Congress Underrepresented Student Travel Award, you are required to acknowledge the support that you received by including the SPS logo on your poster. This award will provide funding toward your Physics Congress registration, travel to the meeting location (e.g., airfare), and lodging. The SPS National Office will assist award recipients in making these arrangements.
You are required to submit either a 500-word report with two photos of what you gained by attending the Physics Congress or 2 short 60-second videos about your experience at PhysCon by November 7, 2022.
The PhysCon Underrepresented Student Awards are funded, in part, by the generosity of Sigma Pi Sigma members and donations to the AIP Foundation.
