Macy’s is proud to support organizations and to sponsor events that benefit our philanthropic focus areas and our communities across the country. Our focus areas are arts and culture, education, the environment, HIV/AIDS and women’s issues.
Grants from the Macy’s Foundation (including the Bloomingdale’s Fund of the Macy’s Foundation) are focused in the categories of arts and culture, education, the environment, HIV/AIDS and women’s issues.
Each year, AAPT awards several two-year Hashim A. Yamani AAPT Memberships, which are regular electronic memberships and include electronic only access to copies of the American Journal of Physics, The Physics Teacher, and Physics Today.
It is the goal of the AAPT to encourage high school teachers to experiment and improve on their teaching practices. It is our belief that as teaching practice improves, then physics enrollment and excitement among students increase. As a result, we offer the High School Physics Teacher Grant. We hope that this grant can provide the funds to kick start the implementation of these practices.
The Frederick and Florence Bauder Endowment for the Support of Physics Teaching (Bauder Fund) was established to support special activities in the area of physics teaching.
The Materials Computation Center (MCC) at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign administers an NSF-sponsored program offers travel funds to US-based scientists to attend workshops, symposium and tutorials.
Travel to Australia! The American Society for Microbiology invites its members to apply for the Millis-Colwell Exchange Program for Early Career Scientists.
The AWIS Educational and Professional Development Awards support travel for professional development, broadly defined. We particularly wish to encourage early-career scientists. Individuals may request funding to attend a conference, to acquire specialized training, or to pursue professional development in other ways that take them from home.
Women mathematicians who wish to collaborate with an educational researcher or to learn about educational research may use the mentoring grants to travel to collaborate with or be mentored by a mathematics education researcher. In order to be considered for one of the mentor travel grants, a mathematics applicant must hold a doctorate in mathematics.
The objective of the NSF-AWM Mathematics Mentoring Travel Grants is to help junior women to develop a long-term working and mentoring relationship with a senior mathematician. This relationship should help the junior mathematician to establish her research program and eventually receive tenure.
The Mathematics Education Research Travel Grants provide full or partial support for travel and subsistence for:
• mathematicians attending a research conference in mathematics education or related field
• researchers in mathematics education (or related field) attending a mathematics conference.
