The APS/DFD External Affairs Committee is responsible for the education and outreach activities of the DFD. The DFD wishes to promote the subject of fluid dynamics and help those who find the financial burden of the meeting difficult. The DFD will provide travel grants to a small number of individuals.  These grants aim to:

  • Support undergraduates to attend the annual meeting;
  • Support graduate students or investigators within 3 years of their faculty appointment and who lack other support to attend the annual meeting;
  • Support scientists from other countries to attend the meeting. Preference will be given to scientists from developing countries who could not ordinarily attend the meeting.


For financial support, the Division is grateful to the National Science Foundation (Division of Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental, and Transport Systems), and to AIP Publishing (‘Physics of Fluids-serving the fluid dynamics community since 1958’).
