Grad. student awarded fellowship
A Miami University student is one of a select group of students nationwide to receive a prestigious fellowship from the National Science Foundation (NSF).
James P. Clemens, of Oxford, is the recipient of a three-year NSF graduate research fellowship worth more than $25,000 a year.
A graduate student in physics, Clemens works with associate professor Perry Rice on problems in quantum optics. He has presented five talks at meetings, published one paper and has three others submitted or in preparation. Next year he will attend the University of Oregon to work with Howard Carmichael, a leading expert in quantum theory.
Clemens received a bachelor's degree in physics from Miami in 1997.
Susan Burke, a graduating senior physics major, was named as an alternate.
Part of NSF's effort to help ensure the vitality and excellence of the U.S. human resource base in science, mathematics and engineering, the fellowships offer support for graduate study in all scientific disciplines.
The fellowships provide a stipend of $15,000 per year for full-time graduate study. NSF also provides to the awardee's school an annual cost-of-education allowance of $10,500 in lieu of all tuition and required fees.
