fellowships & grantsphysics Reshmi Mukherjee, the Helen Goodhart Altschul Professor of Physics & Astronomy, named to the prestigious American Physical Society.The American Physical Society (APS) has selected Reshmi Mukherjee, the Helen Goodhart Altschul Professor of Physics & Astronomy, as one of its 2017 Fellows.
The APS Fellowship Program was created to recognize members who may have made advances in physics through original research and publication or made significant innovative contributions in the application of physics to science and technology. They may also have made significant contributions to the teaching of physics or service and participation in the activities of the Society.>
Each year, no more than one half of one percent of the Society membership is recognized by their peers for election to the status of Fellow in the American Physical Society.
Professor Mukherjee is cited by the APS for advancing multifrequency strategies for the identification of gamma-ray sources and contributing significant leadership in blazar studies between the GeV and TeV gamma-ray bands. She is the second Barnard College professor in the APS’s history to be selected for the Society; Professor Janna Levin was the first in 2014.
Professor Mukherjee also recently received funding from NASA’s Space Fund grant program for an ongoing collaborative project with Cornell University.

Trinity Church Wall Street and Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York (Union) today announced the creation of the Trinity Union Fellows program, which will bring international students to Trinity and Union for one year of academic training and faith formation.
The program will begin in the 2018-2019 academic year with an initial cohort of up to six students from China and India. Funded by a $750,000 grant from Trinity, the Fellows will join other students in the Master of Sacred Theology (S.T.M) degree program. The grant will cover a full range of expenses for students, including English language courses and living stipends. Union and Trinity will be partnering with sister institutions in China and India to identify applicants for the program.
“A key aspect of Trinity Church’s mission is to help train and develop church leadership,” said the Rev. Dr. William Lupfer, Rector of Trinity Church Wall Street. “This program will provide an opportunity for international students to immerse themselves in the rigorous academic environment at Union, as well as the community life of the growing congregation at Trinity Church, providing a well-rounded experience for these future Christian leaders.”
“We are excited to be partnering with Union Theological Seminary, which has a long and well-respected history of educating international students to act as catalysts in their communities and their churches,” said Dr. Lupfer.
At Trinity, students will participate in all facets of worship, as well as learn
