Nano foundation awards Texas students

Jan. 9, 2003 — The Nanotechnology Foundation of Texas is giving its first awards for nanotech research to two Texas graduate students.


Tobias Hanrath of the University of Texas at Austin will receive the George Kozmetsky Award for Outstanding Graduate Research in Nanotechnology and Yuhuang Wang of Rice University will receive the David G. Nance Award for Outstanding Graduate Research in Nanotechnology. The doctoral students, who each will receive $5,000, were nominated by professors from their universities and chosen from a field of 18 nominees at eight universities.


The foundation said it launched the awards to recognize excellence in nano research, and they are believed to be the first of their kind to be offered to U.S. students working in the emerging field. The nonprofit, publicly funded group was founded in 2001 to boost nano research in Texas.
