The Wirszup Fellowship was established in 2012 in memory of Izaak Wirszup, a beloved member of our department and of the university community for many years, who had worked tirelessly towards improving the quality of mathematics education over the decades. The award is given to an excellent finishing graduate student. The recipients this year are Alan Chang and Lvzhou Chen.
The Kowalsky Fellowship provides support for a graduate student, who is doing excellent research towards her dissertation. The award is established through a bequest from Walter and Yvonne Kowalsky in memory of their daughter Nadine Kowalsky, who died of leukemia in 1996. Nadine graduated from the University of Chicago in 1994 with a dissertation directed by Robert Zimmer. The recipient this year is Mathilde Gerbelli-Gauthier.
