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. APS units and committees that organize sessions at the APS March and April Meetings are invited each fall to submit nominations for the Marshak Lectureship.

Unit Leaders can nominate distinguished physicists living outside of the US using the nomination form.
