Assassin Picture of the Week

2014 April 6

Congratulations to Tom and Jacob!

It was a very good week for OSU students working on "Assassin". First on Monday, Tom Holoien, a first-year astronomy graduate student at OSU, found out that he was among a very small (~10) group of US graduate students selected for the Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship! DOE CSGF provides outstanding benefits and opportunities to students pursuing doctoral degrees in fields that use high-performance computing to solve complex science and engineering problems, including up to four years of stipend, full tuition and fees. Then on Tuesday, which happened to be Prima Aprilis, Jacob Jencson, OSU graduating senior also working on ASAS-SN, found out that he was awarded the National Science Foundation's Graduate Research Fellowship! Jacob is about to select which astronomy graduate program he will join in Autumn 2014, and NSF GRF will provide three years of stipend, full tuition and fees, allowing him to fully concentrate on research.

Needless to say, we are all very happy about Jacob's and Tom's success, and the fact that ASAS-SN students are doing so well (back in January 2014, Ben Shappee accepted a five-year Hubble-Carnegie-Princeton Postdoctoral Fellowship).
