These awards are made to “exemplary students in physics” by the Thomas D. Rossing Fund for Physics Education. Mikaela Algren ’17 was named a Rossing Physics Scholar and Grace Kerber ’17 was named a Rossing Physics Scholar–Honorable Mention. The awards, each of which carries a monetary scholarship, are made possible through generous gifts from Dr. Thomas D. Rossing who created the fund through the Foundation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Mikaela and Grace are pictured at right doing research work in Dr. Jessie Petricka’s atomic and molecular physics lab during the summer of 2014, as part of Gustavus’ First Year Research Experience (FYRE) program.
