Nearly 300 APS Student Affiliates attended the APSSC Student Social in Washington, DC in 2011.

In case you were on the fence about whether to attend the APS Annual Convention, the APSSC is offering ways to cut down on the travel and registration costs.

  • For volunteering and travel assistance, the APSSC is currently accepting applications online here. The APS student affiliates who are selected as volunteers are provided with a $200 travel grant to help defray the cost of attending the annual convention. For 2013 the APSSC expects to fund 45-50 volunteers.
  • The APSSC hotel match-up program is a service for APS student members seeking to reduce their convention-related expenses by finding other students who are interested in sharing the cost of accommodation at the annual convention. Andrew Sage, APSSC Membership and Volunteers Officer, collects information from students interested in the program and only distributes this information to other applicants in the Hotel Match-Up Program. Please email Andrew Sage at [email protected] for more information.*

More details about APSSC student programming can be found in the Student Events section on the APS Convention webpage.
