Congratulations to Matthew Greaney from the Brutchey Group who was just chosen to be one of the 2015 ACS Division of Inorganic Chemistry Young Investigator Awardees. Matt will present his award talk at the fall ACS meeting in Boston, where he will receive a plaque and an honorarium.

Congratulations to Cesar DeLeon and Amanda Baxter on receiving NSF graduate research fellowships.
The NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines. Cesar and Amanda were two of 16,500 applicants for these prestigious fellowships.
In addition, students carrying out undergraduate research in our department also have also done well in this competition. John Seonghyun Lee (with Brutchey, now at UC Berkeley) and Robinson Flaig (REU with Williams, now UC Berkeley) are recipients of NSF graduate research fellowships.
