New: The Physics in Film Travel Grant for Sloan Award Winners
The grant will enable students to visit large physics experiments (colliders, telescopes, direct detection, synchrotrons, etc.), that are located outside of NYC.

In order to be eligible for the Physics in Film Travel Grant, students must first win a Sloan Award for a script that incorporates physics.  

The winning student will be awarded a travel grant of up to $2,000 to visit a physics experiment where they can further the development of their project, such as through filming or conducting on-site research.
