R. Bruce Stewart Prize for Excellence in Teaching Physics

The Division of Physics, Mathematics and Astronomy is pleased to announce the R. Bruce Stewart Prize for Excellence in Teaching Physics and is requesting nominations. 

The prize is to be awarded to a graduate student teaching assistant who demonstrates, in the broadest sense, unusual ability, creativity, and innovation in undergraduate/graduate classroom or laboratory teaching of physics.

The prize consists of a certificate and a cash award of $4,000. All graduate teaching assistants who teach physics classes are eligible as long as they are a current graduate student at Caltech.

Nomination packages are due on or before June 1, 2015. Nominations for the Stewart Prize may be made by any member of the Caltech community, including faculty, students, postdoctoral scholars, alumni, and staff. A letter of nomination and detailed supporting material (including, but not limited to: a curriculum vitae, course syllabus or description, and supporting recommendation letters) should be directed to:

Chairman,
Division of Physics, Mathematics and Astronomy

Nomination materials should be delivered in electronic form to pmachair@caltech.edu

Nominees not selected in a given year will be considered part of the nomination pool for each of the following two years, as long as the nominee remains a graduate student at Caltech. New material is not required for re-nomination, but will be accepted. Consideration of a nominee after three years will require re-nomination.
