Voloshin to receive Humboldt Award


Professor Mikhail Voloshin of the School of Physics and Astonomy will receive the Humboldt Research Award for Senior U.S. Scientists.

Voloshin will receive the award, which includes a grant to do collaborative study at the University of Bonn in Germany in recognition of his "past accomplishments in research and teaching." The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation was established in 1860 originally with the aim of sponsoring research travel abroad by German Scholars. Since 1925, the Foundation's primary aim has been to assist non-German scholars in undertaking postgraduate studies in Germany.
