Green named Churchill Scholar
Dmitry Green, a fourth-year student concentrating in physics, has been awarded a Churchill Scholarship to study for a year at Churchill College, Cambridge University.
Green's scholarship is one of 10 awarded annually by the Winston Churchill Foundation to U.S. students graduating in mathematics, science or engineering. The scholarship provides tuition and living and travel allowances for a year of study and research at Churchill College.
Green will travel to Cambridge in September to study theoretical physics. He will receive a Certificate of Advanced Study in Mathematics at the conclusion of his year abroad.
"I'm excited to be going to Cambridge. The dichotomy between mathematics and physics is not as great in England as it is in the States, traditionally," Green said.
After his stay at Cambridge, Green will return to the United States and enter one of the graduate programs to which he's already been accepted to study condensed-matter theory.
Green has also been awarded a National Science Foundation Fellowship.
