E. Leonard Jossem International Education Fund
E. Leonard Jossem
Established in 2011
The E. Leonard (Len) Jossem International Education Fund provides grants to individuals in support of international programs dealing with teaching and learning of physics. Len Jossem was one of the prime international leaders in physics education, especially many programs associated with the AAPT. He understood the impact that reaching out to others had on improving physics and physics education, particularly across the globe. His passion was to foster collaboration and cooperation since "physics research knows no borders." The fund will be available for two different categories:
The funds will be available to any AAPT member actively engaged in the teaching and learning of physics: graduate students, post doctoral fellows, and high school, college, and university faculty.
Proposals requesting funds must address the networking aspects of the project since Len Jossem appreciated the importance of communication and collaboration as keys to the success of any project.
