International Member Grant

A grant of £500 to support members outside of the UK and Ireland to run activities in partnership with their national physics societies.


Members outside the UK and Ireland can apply for funds to:

  • arrange networking events for physicists
  • run outreach events in their community
  • organise activities to benefit the development and/or promotion of physics

How much is the grant

We have £1,000 to award to international work twice a year in April and September. We award a maximum of £500 per activity.

Who can apply

This funding is for members outside the UK and Ireland working in partnership with the physics societies of their countries of residence.

Members are welcome to apply for the grant more than once if they present us with a new idea each time.

When to apply

Applications re-open in April 2019.

How to apply

Members send the application form which will ask them to outline the nature of their activity and describe how the funds will be spent.

More information

Email international@iop.org to find out more or return an application.

If you are successful

Award winners send us a report shortly after their activity, which outlines what they did. It should be no more than 500 words.

We also ask members to take photos and, if possible, film video – on a mobile phone or tablet is fine. We promote the work that members do with the grant and share this with our wider membership.
