Scott Russell Johnson Achievement Award Winners

The Scott Russell Johnson Achievement awards were established in 2001 by Steve and Rosemarie Johnson in memory of Steve's brother Scott who graduated in Math from Caltech in 1983.

The Scott Russell Johnson Prize for Excellence in Graduate Study is given to continuing graduate students for extraordinary progress in research and excellence in teaching, or excellent performance as a first-year graduate student. Recipients of these prizes are named Scott Russell Johnson Fellows and receive a summer of support from the Scott Russell Johnson Fellowship. The Scott Russell Johnson Graduate Dissertation Prize in Mathematics is awarded for the best graduate dissertation in mathematics.
