2019 Scholarship Winners Announced!

The Department of Physics is pleased to announce some of the winners of scholarships for excellence in physics in 2019.

Jankulovski and Rehse

Alexi Jankulovski (4th year BSc. Honours Physics with Co-op), pictured at left receiving her award from Dr. Rehse, was the recipient of the third annual Lucjan Krause Scholarship.  This scholarship awards $1000/year to a student enrolled in any Physics program to recognize their excellence in physics.  This scholarship has been established by Professor Krause’s family in his name to recognize deserving undergraduate students who through their academic and scientific endeavors bring recognition and honour to the University of Windsor’s Department of Physics.  Way to go, Alexi!

Drake and Ouellette

Andrew Ouellette (currently finalizing his Ph.D., Physics), was the second recipient of Tom & Mylo Drake Physics Research Prize.  This scholarship awards $1200/year to a student enrolled in any graduate physics program or in a 4th year undergraduate physics program to recognize their excellence in physics.  This prize has been endowed by University Professor Emeritus Dr. Gordon Drake (shown above at left awarding the prize to Andrew) in honor of his parents.  According to the requirements of the prize: “The award will be given annually to a student in Physics of good academic standing who exhibits the best research achievements, based on such considerations as referee reports for published work, prizes or other forms of recognition...”  Congratulations, Andrew!
