Fireman Fellowship (Graduate)

The gift of Rita S. Fireman to the Harvard College Observatory to establish the Edward L. Fireman Fellowship Fund "in memory of a man who loved his work as an experimental physicist. Then income from this fund is to be used both to conserve the principal and to provide support each year to a worthy graduate student. The funds are to be given at the discretion of the Chairman of the Department of Astronomy, preferably to a doctoral student engaged in experimental work in a field related to nuclear astrophysics. Each student receiving such supplementary funds is to be known as a Fireman Fellow. A biographical sketch on each Fireman Fellow will be provided to me and my children for as long as we so desire."
