2014 Kali Ask

Kali won an Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship.


2014 Robert Carlon

Robert won an Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship.

Matthew Epland

2013 Matthew Epland

Matthew is originally from Oakdale, Minnesota. This summer he will work at Duke University and CERN on silicon strip tracker upgrades for the ATLAS detector through the Triangle Universities Nuclear Laboratory REU program. In the past Matthew worked with Professor Cushman's Cryogenic Dark Matter Search research group and with Professor Marshak on neutrino physics. He will attend graduate school to continue his studies in experimental high energy physics. Matthew will use the award to help pay for next year's tuition.

Isaiah Gray

2013 Isaiah Gray

Isaiah Gray is originally from Roseville, Minnesota. Isaiah works with Professor Dan Dahlberg in condensed matter experiment. He is looking at giant magnetoresistance in single thin films, with possible applications to improving hard drives. He plans to use the award to pay for tuition, rent, food, and graduate school applications.

Ryan Frink

2013 Ryan Frink

Ryan Frink is originally from Annandale, Minnesota. The focus of his research is the study of high temperature superconductivity in the cuprates. His advisor is Prof. Martin Greven. Ryan plans on using the award money for tuition.

Hieu Nguyen

2013 Hieu Nguyen

Hieu Nguyen is originally from Vietnam. His research is stochastic vector field simulation used in magnetohydrodynamics simulation in astrophysical objects. His research advisor is Professor Thomas Jones. Hieu plans to use the award money to cover tuition.

Joseph Redford

2012 Joseph Redford

Joseph Redford won a 2012 Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship. He works on the NOvA project under Nathaniel Pearson, building a neutrino detector.
He plans to use the award to pay for my tuition. He is originally from Brandon, South Dakota.

Nicholas Smith

2012 Nicholas Smith

Nichaolas Smith won a 2012 Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship. His research is with Professor Dan Cronin-Hennessy on the BESIII project, He does data analysis to help determine the cross section of D meson events, in particular, how the loss of collision energy due to
beam photon emission effects the mass distribution of the resulting D mesons, and hence the fits that determine the D counts. He plans to use the scholarship for tuition next year. He is originally from Redwing, Minnesota.

Jonathan Morris

2012 Jonathan Morris

Jonathan Morris won an 2012 Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship. His research focuses on in vivo gene regulation of the E. coli PcroOR3 promoter, with Professor Vincent Noireaux. He plans to use the monetary portion of the award will assist in paying for living expenses, GRE and LSAT testing, and graduate application fees. He is originally from Saint Louis, Missouri.

Mitchell Ambrose

2012 Mitchel Ambrose

Mitchel Ambrose won the 2012 Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship. He is currently working with Professor Roger Rusack on the development of a direction-sensitive Cerenkov detector for beam monitoring applications in the Large Hadron Collider. He will be traveling to CERN this summer to continue this research.He plans to use the scholarship money to help finance my final year of undergraduate education. He is originally from Inver Grove Heights, MN.
