Funding from the SPS National Office

Thank you for agreeing to host a zone meeting at your institution. The SPS national office provides funding up to $500 to help cover the costs associated with hosting a zone meeting. Following are the requirements for receiving funding:

  1. A letter signed by the SPS advisor requesting up to $500. The letter should briefly indicate how the money will be spent, and must include the submitting institution's federal tax identification number. You can send your request by mail or fax to the contact information below.


  2. If you would like to have an 'SPS Recruitment Package' (this includes various SPS items) and/or a Future Faces of Physics Kit sent at no additional cost, state so in the letter.

  3. Upon receipt of request, an initial installment of $250 will be sent to the advisor a few weeks before the meeting.


  4. After the zone meeting, a report of the meeting (3 page minimum), photographs, and a list of expenses is required in order to receive the final installment up to $250. Please take photographs of the event so that we may post them on the SPS national website or feature them in the SPS Observer; and use the photos and report in your annual chapter report. This is a nice way to communicate the success of your zone meeting to a national audience.

Don't hesitate to contact me if you should have any questions ... thanks!
