Konstantin Kuzmin, the Center's Ph.D. student, will be honored with Founders Award. He is advised by Prof. Boleslaw K. Szymanski and plans to graduate in November. The Founders Award of Excellence was established in 1994 to honor students who embody qualities of creativity, discovery, leadership, and the values of pride and responsibility at Rensselaer. The award consists of a special certificate, recognition by faculty, staff, and peers at the Honors Convocation ceremony, and a cash prize. Approximately about one percent of Rensselaer's student population are honored each year as winners of Rensselaer’s Founders Award of Excellence.
