Awards and Scholarships Deadline Extension – March 22
In the last issue of the SPS News, we highlighted this information, but wanted to provide another notification that the 2017 SPS Spring Individual Award deadline has been extended to March 22, 2017. Are you an outstanding student? Have you done fantastic work in your SPS Chapter or done excellent research? Is your SPS Advisor outstanding? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then we encourage you to apply for one or more of our SPS Spring Awards!
The Spring Awards include the SPS Scholarships, the SPS Award for Outstanding Undergraduate Research, and the SPS Outstanding Chapter Advisor Award. Please review the following for more information about each award type:
- Review information and eligibility requirements for one of the SPS Scholarships with which you can receive between $2,000 and $5,000.
- The Award for Outstanding Undergraduate Research is provided to students based on exceptional research achievement in any physics related field. Students are eligible to receive up to $1,800 to present at an AIP Member Society meeting, as well as a $500 honorarium for yourself, and a $500 honorarium for your chapter.
- The prestigious Outstanding Chapter Advisor Award provides $5,000 to be split between the SPS Advisor, SPS Chapter, and department. Applicants are awarded on the basis of advisor leadership, student leadership development, support, and encouragement the Advisor has provided to the chapter. Chapters can nominate their advisor and advisors can nominate themselves, as well!
Don't miss these outstanding opportunities to recognize your positive contributions to the physical sciences community!
