APS Prize on gravitation:

The Topical Group on Gravitation and the APS have established a Prize in Gravitational Physics, and have begun a campaign to raise $200,000 to endow the prize. Through the generosity of Dr. David Lee, a 1974 Caltech Ph.D. in gravitational physics, a challenge gift of up to $100,000 has been promised, to match every dollar raised from other sources.


The prize was established to recognize outstanding achievements in gravitational physics, both theoretical and experimental. The APS plans to name it the Einstein Prize in Gravitational Physics. As of January 2001, we have raised $100,000 ($50,000 from Dr. Lee, $50,000 from TGG members).


Please give generously to support this new TGG Prize!


You may make a lump sum contribution, or pledge an amount to be spread over some years. The APS will send a reminder when each installment is due. Contributions are tax deductible as a charitable donation, and can be sent to
