Apker Award Finalists Convene

 Apker Finalists lge

The APS Apker Award for outstanding physics research by an undergraduate is given annually in two categories: to a student from a PhD-granting institution, and to a student from an institution not granting the PhD. This year there were seven finalists from the two categories, who met in Washington in late August to be interviewed by the selection committee. They are (l to r): Adam Keith (North Carolina State University); Theodore J. Yoder (Franklin and Marshall College); Seth Whitsitt (University of Texas, Austin); Yuliya Dovzhenko (Princeton University); Matthew Ware (Illinois State University); Peter H. Jumper (University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth); and Kiaran B. Dave (University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign). The two Apker Award recipients will be pictured in next month's APS News.
