Marshak Lectureship

The Marshak Lectureship, endowed by Ruth Marshak in honor of her late husband and former APS president, Robert Marshak, is to provide travel support for physicists of any career level (i.e., from graduate student to senior scientist) from developing nations or Eastern Europe invited to speak at APS meetings. Members of the Executive Committees of APS Units and advisory committees that organize sessions at the APS March and April Meetings are invited each year to submit nominations for the Marshak Lectureship.
