Mitchell Summer Research Scholarships Awarded!

Thursday, May 10 2012

Three of our physics majors have been awarded Mitchell Scholarships to do
research with physics faculty this summer. Peter Breiding has been awarded
$5,000 to work with Professor Gallagher designing and building a new tunable
laser, Davis van Petten has $5,000 to work with Professor Baessler on
precision detection of neutron decay, and Anthony Charles has $1,250 for a
three-week project with Professor Vaman on string theory.

These Undergraduate Research Scholarships, awarded annually, are funded by a
generous bequest from the estate of our former colleague, Professor John
Mitchell.
