As you know, IAPS offers grants, volunteering work, and opportunities to gain experiences in an international non-governmental, non-profit association, and help to its members.
To help each student interested in an exchange or starting at a new university, IAPS is establishing a Contact Network. The goal is to have at least one student at each university, willing to help others with information on the university, city, or country. At the same time. it’s always nice to already know a person in the city you move to, e.g. to find good places to hang out.
If you are interested, and we hope you are, please send an email with your name and university to firstname.lastname@example.org. Only your university will be published, and your name and email address will be provided to an interested student on request to the same email address listed above.
We are looking forward to having a huge network and help as many students as possible.
If you do have questions, suggestions, or comments about the Network, please do let us know.

Having trouble getting your fellow students excited about IAPS and the world of physics students? That is now a thing of the past – introducing the Student Ambassador Program!
If you have ever been part of an IAPS activity, chances are that you found it to be a rewarding experience, which you will cherish for years. However, most physics students have never had that chance, and for whichever reason, they have not been motivated to seek it.
As an Ambassador, you will be part of an international team sharing information about our offers to local student communities all over the world. This can be achieved through, but is not limited to, putting up posters, distributing flyers, telling your colleagues, writing to magazines, getting students involved, and more. Whether you want to focus on your local environment or a larger area is up to you. The workload is defined by your own schedule.
Though not required, you will have easy access to participation in our projects and subbies and you will inevitably help improve and change what it means to study physics. You will receive regular emails with information and material in need of sharing and you will be able to write directly to the PR Subbie and discuss your progress with us. Thus, IAPS will support you with ideas on how to get your community involved while we can all learn from your experience in return. As such, the Ambassador position is also an opportunity to change IAPS as well as making it grow.
Many new students will benefit because of passionate Student Ambassadors and we very much hope that you are willing to join in the efforts.
