Description from the Award’s Website:

“The LeRoy Apker Award recognizes outstanding achievements in physics by undergraduate students, and provides encouragement to young physicists who have demonstrated great potential for future scientific accomplishment. Two awards are presented each year, one to a student from a Ph. D. granting institution, and one to a student from a non-Ph. D. granting institution. The award consists of $5,000 for the recipient, $5,000 for their undergraduate institution’s physics department to support undergraduate research, a certificate, and reimbursement for travel to an APS meeting to give an invited talk.

“Six finalists are selected to present their research for the Apker Award Selection Committee. The 2016 Apker Award Selection Meeting will be held on August 22 in Washington, D.C. Each of the finalists will receive an honorarium of $2,000, $1,000 for their undergraduate institution’s physics department to support undergraduate research, reimbursement for travel to the selection meeting, and a certificate.”

 

Must be nominated by the Physics Department.
