Tan wins 2017 Franklin Scholarship

Xin Zhi Tan won a 2017 Edmund G. Franklin Scholarships. He is from Malaysia originally. He plans to use his scholarship to pay for tuition and travel back to Malaysia during the coming winter. He is currently working in Professor Shaul Hanany's group. Tan is interested in continuing his studies in nuclear physics.

Hall wins 2017 Franklin Scholarship

Dakota Hall won a 2017 Edmund G. Franklin Scholarship. Hall is originally from Walker, Minnesota. He plans to use the award money to help with tuition and rent. Hall research focuses primarily on astrophysics, looking for patterns in the composition of elements within stars.

Lance Davis wins 2017 Edmond Franklin Scholarship

Lance Davis won the 2017 Edmund Franklin Scholarship. He is originally from Zimmerman, Minnesota. With this scholarship, he will be able spend more hours on academic and research work rather than other jobs.
His current research focus is in Heliophysics. Davis is working on finding the differences between interplanetary shocks with a clear shock ramp and those with a turbulent shock ramp. Ideally, these differences will lead the scientists to finding what causes these different types of shocks.

Sam Penders

Sam Penders won a 2017 Edmund Franklin Scholarship. He is originally from Apple Valley, Minnesota. He plans to use the scholarship to help cover the cost of tuition. He is interested in high energy physics, and plans to pursue a Ph.D in theoretical particle physics. More »

Eliott Imhoff

Imhoff wins Franklin Scholarship

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." More »

Ryan Schmitz

Schmitz wins 2017 Franklin Scholarship

Ryan Schmitz won a 2017 Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship. He is from Rogers, Minnesota, a suburb in the north metro. He plans to use the money to pay tuition and to help fund his studies at CERN this summer. He currently work with Prisca Cushman in the CDMS collaboration, where he uses simulations to help design improvements to a dark matter detector. More generally, he is interested in studying computational particle physics and working with particle accelerators to look for new physics beyond the standard model.
