The GHP Executive Committee is pleased to announce the first call for nominations for its newly endowed American Physical Society Dissertation Award in Hadronic Physics. Reaching the endowment milestone was made possible in part by significant contributions from Brookhaven Science Associates, Jefferson Science Associates, LLC (the management contractor for Jefferson Laboratory), and Universities Research Association (the management contractor for Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory).
The first GHP Dissertation Award will be presented at the April 2013 GHP Meeting in Denver, Colorado. Nominations should be sent to Ramona Vogt
