Student Receives Josephine De Karman Fellowship

June 4, 2008
EVANSTON, Ill. --- Yonatan Kahn of San Jose, a double-degree senior in the Northwestern University Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Music, has been selected for the 2008 Josephine De Kármán Fellowship Trust, which includes $10,000 to fund his undergraduate studies.

A total of 12 scholars were selected this year from over 600 undergraduate and graduate applicants embarking on their final year of study from across all disciplines. Kahn is the first Northwestern undergraduate in the history of the Office of Fellowships to be selected.

Kahn is currently a fourth-year student in the five-year combined bachelor of arts/bachelor of music program, studying physics and french horn.

Kahn spent fall 2006 at Ecole Polytechnique in Paris and was the recipient of a Goldwater Scholarship in 2007. He spent last summer at CERN research laboratories in Geneva, Switzerland, pursuing research in particle physics on a Kriegbaum research grant from the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences.

The Josephine De Kármán Fellowship Trust was established in 1954 by the late Dr. Theodore von Kármán, world renowned aeronautics expert and teacher, in memory of his sister, Josephine. The purpose of the Fellowship is to recognize and assist students whose scholastic achievements reflect Professor von Kármán's high standards.
