The Katherine E. Pope Fellowship

By Lee Lyon

SLAC is pleased to announce the availability of the third Katherine E. Pope Summer Fellowship.

The Fellowship was established to remember the life of Katherine E. Pope, an undergraduate student at Smith College in Massachusetts, who was working at SLAC under the direction of her physics advisor. Pope was tragically killed in July 2001, riding a bicycle on her way to SLAC.

Pope was a young renaissance woman with a fascination not only for physics but also for history, art and animals. Her warm personality and sense of humor made her an excellent colleague. Even as an undergraduate, she had earned her place on the publication list for one of SLACís experiments.

This fellowship honors Katherine Pope and encourages other undergraduates with an interest in science, especially physics, to pursue their academic interest at SLAC. The Pope Summer Fellowship will provide round trip transportation between the recipientís home and SLAC, a $500 per week stipend, and lodging for the time of the appointment.

Applications must be postmarked no later than March 14. The application form can be found at: http://www-group.slac.stanford.edu/hr/forms/summerfellowshipapp.html For additional information, contact Lee Lyon, Ext. 2283, lyon@slac.stanford.edu.
