Outreach is the responsibility of every scientist. APS offers many ways to reach out to the next generation of scientists.

See the Resources section below to learn how to  participate in Physiology Understanding Week, a local science fair, and how to apply for the APS K-12 Minority Outreach Fellowship.


Diversity Programs Brochure

This resource brochure contains information about available awards, fellowships and career development opportunities designed to increase the overall participation of those from groups which are currently underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

K-12 Minority Outreach Fellowships

This program seeks to foster communication between minority graduate and postdoctoral students and middle/high school minority life sciences students.

Local Science Fairs

APS members can give an APS award at their local or regional science fair at the elementary, middle, or high school level.

PhUn Week

Physiology Understanding (PhUn) Week is the APS’ member-based annual outreach program to K-12 school classrooms each November.
