Established in December 2000 by Thomas Mason to help expose
talented doctoral students in the Department of Physics to problems and
approaches in non-physics disciplines through summer interaction with professors
in other departments, this award is given to a talented UMD Physics doctoral
student with an interdisciplinary summer research plan.
In order to be nominated for this award, doctoral students
must formulate a plan with your advisor and a cooperative scientist in
another department. When you have a clear outline of what you would like to do
this summer, complete the form below. Questions about the proposals should be
directed to the Associate Chair for Graduate Studies, Peter Shawhan.
