Edmond B. Franklin Scholarships


Recognizes exceptional promise based on academic achievement. Physics majors are eligible for this scholarship; Astrophysics majors are not.

David Christle

2007 David J. Christle

David's research interests are spin dynamics, artificial spin ice, geometrically frustrated systems, micromagnetics, and exchange-bias. He plans to use his physics degree to attend graduate school in pursuit of a doctoral degree in condensed matter physics. He is originally from St. Cloud, Minnesota.


2007 Malgorzata Siorek

Margo's research interests include crystallography, particularly the binding of Congo Red with lysozyme and human insulin. She plans to use her degree to pursue either a Masters or Ph.D. She is originally from Wroclaw, Poland.


2007 Ashley L. Nord

Ashley's research interests at this point are still very broad. She is interested in astrophysics and elementary particle physics. She will be spending the summer of 2007 at the Institute for Astrophysics in Hawaii studying the physics of star formation and evolution. Ashley plans to use her degree to attend graduate school in physics. She is orginally from Rapid City, South Dakota.

Craig Muckenhirn

2007 Craig J. Muckenhirn

Craig is still undecided about field of physics in which he would utlimately like to work. He plans to use his degree to pursue a Masters and Ph.D. in physics. He hopes to one day become a professor of physics. Criag is originally from Detroit Lakes, Minnesota.
