Background:

The Worster family has graciously given their gift to support the development of graduate and undergraduate research in physics through a mentoring program that pairs an undergraduate with a graduate student mentor during the summer. All graduate students that have their thesis committee chaired by a physics faculty member are eligible to apply for this award, but only undergraduates who have declared themselves Physics majors can be supported. We anticipate funding 6 grad-undergrad teams in 2013.
