The 2008 Davidson Fellows

Five Davidson Fellow Laureates and 15 Davidson Fellows were honored September 24, 2008 at the Library of Congress for their innovative breakthroughs and prodigious works in the fields of Science, Mathematics, Technology, Music, Literature, Philosophy and Outside the Box. In recognition of their achievements, each of the students was honored individually by Jan and Bob Davidson. The Davidson Fellow Laureates each received a $50,000 scholarship, and the Davidson Fellows received either a $25,000 or $10,000 scholarship.

The Davidson Institute would like to thank Senators Harry Reid (Nevada) and Chuck Grassley (Iowa) for co-sponsoring the 2008 Davidson Fellows award ceremony.
