BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- A first-year graduate student studying experimental nuclear physics has received a three-year, $151,500 award from the U.S. Department of Energy to further his education and research involving ultra-cold neutrons.

Daniel Salvat, who completed a Bachelor of Science in both physics and mathematics at IU in 2008, is among the first class of Department of Energy Office of Science Graduate Fellowship award winners. He was one of 150 awardees from a group of more than 3,200 applicants who sought the new DOE fellowship geared towards young scientists and engineers whose work is hoped to make major contributions to national goals for energy, environment and scientific discovery and innovation.
