New Travel Scholarship Opportunity

The Division of Physics of Beams (DPB) of the American Physical Society is offering 5 to 8 travel scholarships to USPAS students. Applicants must be members of the APS DPB unit (note that student membership is free for the first year). The DPB scholarship will cover travel expenses and your USPAS scholarship will cover housing and your registration fee. Typical travel awards amounts will be $500.00 with the possibility of larger awards for higher cost points of origin. These scholarships are open to domestic and international students who meet the usual USPAS scholarship requirements (required documents listed above). You can enroll for DPB membership here  https://www.aps.org/membership/ and more details on eligibility and the selection criteria can be found at DPB Scholarship Details.

Participation is open to both U.S. and non-U.S. residents. International participants not currently residing in the U.S. may apply to attend the program and may request financial sponsorship but they may not earn credit from the University of California San Diego. Note: International students requesting a scholarship who are NOT from U.S. visa-waiver countries must already be in possession of a visa that is valid for the entire period of the USPAS session.
