From: The American Physiological Society
Award Amount: Up to $5,000
Contact: Executive Office
Deadlines: April 15 and October 15
The John F. Perkins, Jr. Memorial Award for International Physiologists promotes cultural exchange and scientific collaborations by providing supplementary aid to families of foreign scientists working for a minimum of 3 months in the U.S. In this way, young scientists are able to bring their families and thus make full use of the cultural exchange as well as the scientific benefits associated with an international collaboration.
The program presupposes that the visiting scientist and his/her host already have made arrangements for scientific collaboration and have sufficient funds to cover the needs of the visiting scientist.
Several awards are granted each year. Application for the Perkins Award must be made jointly by the host, who must be an APS member, and the visiting scientist. The recipient receives funds generally not exceeding $5,000. The size of the award depends on the estimated needs over and above the amount already available to the visiting scientist.
Deadlines: For scientific visits beginning between January 1 and June 30, the application is due on October 15 the year before with notification by December 15. For scientific visits beginning between July 1 and December 31, the application is due on April 15 of the same year with notification by June 15.
Applications will now only be accepted via online submission.
