GEOGRAPHY DAY IS TODAY AT THE NATIONAL WEATHER CENTER!
Grad Student Awarded Prestigious Honor
Meteorology graduate student Phillip Stepanian was awarded and accepted a prestigious Marshall post-graduate Fellowship. After completing his Ph.D., he will conduct biological radar research in the United Kingdom. Typically only one of these prestigious Fellowships are awarded annually across the entire US each year. Graduate students in science and engineering are offered to Fellowship to enable American scientists or engineers to undertake post-doctoral research for up to one year at a British university or research institute.
Looking over the award winners of the past 15 years, Stepanian appears to be the first atmospheric scientist to be awarded this honor in that time frame.
Congratulations to Phillip Stepanian and his advisor Professor Phil Chilson!
Annual OU Reception Another Success!
Each year, the University of Oklahoma hosts a reception for alumni, students and others at the American Meteorological Society's Annual Meeting. This year, the conference was held in Phoenix and the OU Reception took place at the beautiful Arizona Science Center. Check out some of the fun had by all!
