Undergraduate Brandon Turner
Awarded APS Minority Fellowship

Brandon TurnerIn April, the American Physical Society awarded Brandon Turner, a Physics major, with an APS Scholarship for Minority Undergraduate Physics Majors. Brandon is a rising junior who is engaged in research with Dean Jacque Fetrow, who works in the field of computational biophysics. According to the APS website, the goal of this scholarship is to increase the number of under-represented minorities obtaining degrees in physics. It provides funding and mentoring to minority physics students to enhance their education and help them prepare for success in various careers. These APS Scholarships are funded through the generosity of corporate and individual donors. This program, which began in 1980, has graduated students who have received their Ph.D.s in physics and are now working as physics faculty members in universities, as well as research scientists at corporations and national labs. Some past scholars have also become high school physics teachers.
