AAPT Winter Meeting 2023



AAPT Travel Grants

(the application period is closed)

AAPT has set aside funds to help members of the physics education community defray the cost to attend the AAPT 2023 Virtual Winter Meeting (WM23).  

Travel Grant Eligibility

  • AAPT professional and student members who are registered for the WM23 are eligible for grants.
  • The National Society of Black Physicists (NSBP) and National Society of Hispanic Physicists (NSHP) members are eligible for diversity registration grants with consideration given to AAPT members. Applicants must be registered to be considered for an award.
  • A portion of the funds will be given to K-12 and Two-Year College faculty who are from underrepresented groups and/or from institutions whose students are predominantly underrepresented.  (For information about racial and ethnic groups underrepresented in our discipline, see the bottom of the SP&P webpage.)

The Deadline to submit an application has been extened to November 11, 2022. Previous grant recipients are eligible to reapply.

What do you get from these grants?  
If selected, awardees may receive a grant of up to $500 to support travel to the AAPT 2023 Winter Meeting.

Who should apply? 

  • We strongly encourage applicants with marginalized identities (e.g., ethnic/racial and gender minorities)!
  • We also will prioritize students who will not be reimbursed for their participation from their institutions. Students with externally funded registration are not eligible for these awards. 
  • Other prioritized groups are K-12 teachers, early career faculty, and faculty from Two-Year Colleges

Please note that applicants are eligible to apply for this grant even if they have previously received one of these grants. The grant application forms contain additional criteria for these awards.  The Special Projects and Philanthropy Committee will review the applications.
