The LeRoy Apker Award (APS) is a prize that has been awarded annually by the American Physical Society since 1978, named after the experimental physicist LeRoy Apker. The recipients are chosen for "outstanding achievements in physics by undergraduate students" in order to "provide encouragement to young physicists who have demonstrated great potential for future scientific accomplishment." The Apker award is the highest honor awarded to undergraduate physicists in the United States. Generally, two prizes are awarded each year: one to a student Ph.D. granting institution and one to a student from a non-Ph.D. granting institution. The award consists of a $5,000 prize, allowance for traveling to the APS March Meeting to present the work, and a certificate.
