9th Annual Pappalardo Fellowships in Physics Symposium
The mission of the MIT Pappalardo Fellowships in Physics is to sustain a distinguished postdoctoral program for the Department that identifies, recruits and supports the most talented and promising young physicists at an early stage in their careers.
This initiative was made possible by the encouragement and generosity of Mr. A. Neil Pappalardo, EE '64, an MIT alumnus with a long history of generosity to both the Institute and the Department of Physics.
