Stuart Jay Freedman Award in Experimental Nuclear Physics

Help Endow the Stuart Jay Freedman Award in Experimental Nuclear Physics

Dr. Stuart Jay Freedman, a distinguished experimental nuclear physicist, had a singular role in educating and mentoring graduate students and postdocs. The American Physical Society’s Division of Nuclear Physics (DNP) is pleased to establish an award in his honor to recognize Dr. Freedman’s legacy as a mentor to early career physicists. Please join in contributing to an endowment campaign that will allow the DNP to present the award in perpetuity.

The annual award will consist of:

  • an initial $3,000 stipend, with a goal of increasing it to $5,000 once the award is fully endowed;
  • a certificate citing the contributions made by the recipient;
  • and a travel allowance for the recipient to attend the DNP Spring or Fall Meeting at which the award will be presented.

Help encourage physics graduate students and honor the memory of Dr. Freedman with your gift to help endow the award.
