ANPA Student Travel Grant (ASTG)

General Information

The ANPA Student Travel Grant (ASTG) award is designed to provide financial assistance to students, enabling them to enhance their professional engagement by participating in national and international conferences within the physical sciences or engineering field. This travel grant serves as a financial recourse for those students who, despite being on the brink of graduation, face challenges in attending and presenting their research at a scientific conference due to insufficient funding from other sources.

Currently, ASTG is exclusively available to applicants intending to participate in a scientific conference organized by ANPA. To clarify eligibility, applicants are strongly urged to contact ANPA via email to confirm whether the conference they plan to attend qualifies for ASTG.

Application and Reimbursement Processes

To apply for the travel grant, eligible students must submit their application concurrently with the abstract submission process. The application comprises an online form and a letter or email from the mentor or advisor, which should be directly sent to ANPA at Any changes to the original plan must be promptly communicated to ANPA via email by the recipient student, if applicable.

Upon being awarded the grant, the recipient student is required to submit an expense report within 21 days from the conference’s last day via email. Students are also encouraged to provide a paragraph outlining the ANPA student travel grant program and any suggestions they may have. Following the review of the submitted documents, the decision committee will instruct the ANPA treasurer to proceed with the payment.
