The John Bahcall Astrophysics Lecture, Fellowship, and Prize

Memorial Lectures

at the School of Physics and Astronomy 
Tel Aviv University

 

John N. Bahcall (1934-2005), one of the leading astrophysicists of the 20th century, was also a mentor and true friend of Israeli science and scientists. The John Bahcall Astrophysics Lecture is presented annually at Tel-Aviv University by a distinguished astrophysicist. On this occasion, we also award the John Bahcall Physics Undergraduate Fellowship and the John Bahcall Astrophysics Graduate Student Prize. 

 

The Undergraduate Fellowship is awarded to an excelling 2nd-year TAU Physics student, based on her/his grades in their first year. The fellowship is awarded again to the same student on the following year (their 3rd year of studies) if he/she continues to perform well.

 

The Graduate Student Prize is awarded once every two years to a TAU Astrophysics Ph.D. student who has excelled in her/his thesis research. The Fellowship and the Prize are made possible through generous donations by Prof. Neta Bahcall and family. The John Bahcall Astrophysics Lecture is under the aegis of the Emilio Segre Distinguished Lectures in Physics of the Raymond and Beverly Sackler Foundation. Event organizer: Dan Maoz
