    To apply for these funds, submit your funding request directly to them at the address given below.
    Supporting Women in Physics in Developing Countries
    We have received funding to launch a new round of the IUPAP Travel Grants Program. This program was created to help fund women from developing and low income countries, who may not have another opportunity, to attend a regional or international conferences, workshop, or school. We expect to be able to fund approximately 20-25 women between 7000 & 800 US Dollar each at a maximum.

    Grant applications should be received no later than May 28, 2015. Recipients will be selected by the IUPAP Working Group on Women in Physics by mid/late June, and all applicants will be notified before June 30, 2015 of the outcome.

    Only women physicists from low income developing countries may apply. Due to limited funding, those who have received a grant in the past, under this program, are not eligible for a second grant.

    Those interested in applying for a grant should submit the following information, via email as a WORD document only or as text within the email.

    PLEASE DO NOT SEND AS A PDF FILE. If you attach files, please include your last name on all the file documents.
