Horowitz Fellowship:

We are pleased to announce the creation of the Gary T. and Corinne M. Horowitz Fellowship. Created by a group of anonymous donors, the Fellowship honors the contributions of Gary and Corinne to science, UCSB physics, and the global physics community. Working together, Gary and Corinne have enormously enriched the UCSB experience for students, postdocs, faculty, and visitors alike. The Fellowship will support outstanding beginning PhD students, with preference for students expressing interest in theoretical physics. Anyone wishing to donate as part of the GaryFest celebration can do so at this link, or using any of the other methods described on our giving page.

The GaryFest conference will be held at UCSB's Corwin Pavilion, in the University Center, University of California, Santa Barbara, CA.
