The family of Dr. George Randolph Kalbfleisch graciously established a graduate student scholarship for our physics students.
All individuals who are full-time, regularily enrolled graduate students working toward a Doctor of Philosophy in physics are welcome to apply. The successful candidate must have and maintain an overall grade point average of 3.0. A preference will given to students studying High Energy Physics. Each scholarship will be $1,000 annually ($500 per semester). Each receipient will also receive a copy of the biographical information for Dr. George Randolph Kalbfleisch. Also, the recipient should write a letter expressing graditude to the family.
George Kalbfleisch was born March 14, 1931, in Long Beach, California. He received his bachelor of science degree from Loyola University in 1952. He received his Ph.D. in experimental high energy physics in 1961 from the University of California at Berkeley. He was a post-doctoral fellow at the University of California at Berkeley working with Luis Alvarez. He was a physicist at Brookhaven National Laboratory for 12 years and then at Fermi National Laboratory for 3 years.
Dr. Kalbfleisch came to the University of Oklahoma in 1979 and established the OU High Energy Physics group. In 1982 he became a Fellow of the American Physical Society. He became Professor Emeritus when he retired in 1999. He continued his research at the University of Oklahoma until his death in 2006.
