JOSA Publication Grants

A generous member established a fund for the Optical Society of America to provide assistance with mandatory publication charges to qualified JOSA A or JOSA B authors. The grants may be applied to mandatory overlength page charges and color charges. Applications will be considered by the JOSA A and JOSA B Editors on a first-come, first-served basis until the annual allotment is depleted. Individuals will be considered for a grant if they meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • A first-time author
  • A senior retiree
  • A scientist working in a developing country
