Shakti P. Duggal Award 2015

The Shakti P. Duggal Award was established in 1983 to recognize outstanding work by a young scientist in the field of cosmic ray physics. The award consists of a prize of US $1200.  The winner is invited to visit the Bartol Research Institute at the University of Delaware to present a colloquium at some time during the following year. The intent of this award is to recognize and inspire young cosmic ray scientists early in their careers. The recipient will not have attained the age of 36 on January 1, 2015.  Subject to this age limitation, any person from anywhere in the world who has contributed significantly to the field of cosmic ray physics including astroparticle physics is eligible for consideration. The selection of the prize winner will be made by an International Committee.

A list of the previous winners can be found in this Brief History Shakti Duggal Award 2015.
