APS welcomes applications for its Innovation Fund, which will award grants of between $25,000 and $100,000 per year for up to two years in support of collaborative projects that support the society’s mission. Projects should be led by current APS members and advance an interest of the physics community that have arisen as a result of current circumstances and align with the APS Strategic Plan.
Proposals could include, but are not limited to: a task force, workshop, or study to explore a critical issue facing the physics community; an innovative public engagement experiment; a new approach to science advocacy; a means to advance key APS member interests including diversity, careers, education, or member services; or a path to enable APS to have greater industry engagement or global impact.
Preliminary proposals are due April 22, 2021. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal by July 1, 2021.
