Each year, APS selects two recipients of the Apker Award for outstanding research by an undergraduate. To determine the recipients, a number of finalists are chosen, and then interviewed by the selection committee. This year, the seven finalists met with the committee in Washington on September 3. They are, left to right: Chia Wei Hsu (Wesleyan University); Martin Blood-Forsythe (Haverford College); Erik Petigura (UC, Berkeley); Benjamin Good (Swarthmore College); Patrick Gallagher (Stanford University); William Throwe (MIT); and Christopher Chudzicki (Williams College). The recipients will be announced on the APS website and in a later issue of APS News.
