Elliott Imhoff won a 2017 Franklin Scholarship. He is originally from Madison, WI. "Even though it took somewhat of a crisis of identity to throw off my Badger heritage and become a Gopher, I was able to do it and am extremely happy with my decision." He plans on using this money to pay for school. "Not super original, I know, but because I'm a computer science and physics double major, it's going to take me five years to graduate, with this award doing a lot to ease that burden."

Imhoff is primarily interested in the application of physics to practical uses in the real world, particularly regarding computing and electrical engineering.
