Physics majors have received prestigious Fulbright teaching and research awards, National
Science Foundation fellowships, and Goldwater Scholarships.
In the 60 years that degrees have been awarded for the UD Physics Department there
have been 212 students graduating in Physics, an average of 4.0 per year, although
recent years have seen a rise in our number of graduates.
Graduates were highly successful securing fellowships, assistantships, or scholarships
from quality graduate departments. National awards include six from the NSF, two from
the AEC, 2-3 Fulbrights, two Goldwater Scholarships, and a Woodrow Wilson.
At least 27% of physics graduates have received a Ph.D. in physics or related field.
Physics graduates have received at least 59 Ph.D.s, 54 M.S.s, 23 M.A.s, 12 M.D.s and
8 J.D.s. Data are missing for many graduates and over 20 alums are in the candidate
phase for advanced degrees.
