APS DPP Fellowship
The Division of Plasma Physics strives to attain a diverse representation of Fellows from all areas of the plasma community.

Nominations of traditionally underrepresented groups, such as women, scientists working outside the United States, and minorities, as well as plasma physicists at smaller universities and the private sector are especially welcomed. There is a minimum requirement of at least one year of continuous membership leading up to nomination year. The nominee must be a current member of APS and DPP.

Deadline: Friday, March 30, 2018

Go to Nomination Guidelines
