CLaSP undergraduate wins Wang Chu Chien-Wen Summer Research Fund Award

Climate & Space is very pleased to announce that undergraduate student Geoffrey Jenkins has been selected to receive a 2018 Wang Chu Chien-Wen Summer Research Fund Award. 

Geoff was given the award for his research on the Martian atmosphere under the guidance of Dr. Stephen Bougher.

The Wang Chu Chien-Wen Summer Research Fund was established in 2005 by Tony K. Wang (BSE ’73, MSE ’75) in memory of his mother, Wang Chu Chien-Wen. Although Mrs. Wang never received a college education, she taught her only son, Tony, the values of education, caring, and giving.

The Fund was created with these values in mind: to encourage motivated undergraduates to conduct faculty-mentored research projects during the summer, to write a formal report on their findings, and to present their work to their faculty advisor and peers.

Congratulations, Geoff!
