International Opportunity Program Award

Award: $7,500
Deadline: June 30, 2015
Contact: Executive Office


The APS International Opportunity Program (IOP), established in 2013, provides funds to support educational, training, research, or public outreach events outside of the USA, with the following goals: (1) To promote interactions and exchange between APS members, sister societies, and other international physiologists; (2) To foster education, scientific research, and dissemination of information in the physiological sciences; (3) To support underrepresented regions; and (4) To raise the global stature of the APS. 

Events eligible for IOP support include training workshops, conferences, research symposia (including satellite symposia), and other events promoting physiology education, training, research, or public outreach. The International Physiology Committee of the APS reviews applications by applying the following criteria: (1) Quality of the scientific content; (2) Diversity of invited participants (with respect to gender, country of work, career stage); (3) Clearly articulated plan to involve graduate students and postdoctoral trainees; and (4) Budget justification. Preference is given to events held in, or otherwise serving, underrepresented countries or regions. Stand-alone research symposia programmed for a half day or less are not eligible for support; however, a half-day symposium combined with a laboratory component or other event(s) may be eligible for support. APS makes up to six IOP awards annually, each with a maximum budget of $7,500. 

IOP applications for the 2015 program must be submitted electronically at http://www.the-aps.org/awardapps and are due by June 30, 2015. The Applicant (Organizer) must be an APS member in good standing. The IOP award is disbursed as a reimbursement to the organizer or organizer’s institution upon the receipt by the APS Executive Director of the organizer’s post-event report.
