Nickelson-Sutherland Award for Forrest Kieffer
Forrest Kieffer has been selected as the recipient of the 2015 A. Joyce Nickelson and John C. Sutherland Undergraduate Research Award. Forrest is a math-physics double major, and he has done research in astrophysics with Prof. Tamara Bogdanovic at the CRA. The award consists of a $3,000 scholarship and a certificate. The award was created by a donation by Joyce E. Nickelson and John C. Sutherland to honor Joyce’s late mother, A. Joyce Nickelson, (MATH 1962), and the Nickelson’s longtime friend, John C. Sutherland (PHYS B.S. 1962, M.S. 1964, Ph.D. 1967). The scholarship is awarded by the College of Sciences and recognizes excellence at the interface of mathematics and physics. It is awarded to an undergraduate student who has jointly studied mathematics and physics, and who has engaged in scientific research.
