Each year, the College of Arts & Sciences awards academic scholarships to incoming freshmen in honor of distinguished Washington University teachers and scholars. The Arthur Holly Compton Fellowships in the Physical Sciences and Mathematics honor the memory of Arthur Compton, winner of the Nobel Prize in physics in 1927, and Chancellor of Washington University from 1946 to 1953. Compton Fellows plan to pursue undergraduate majors in earth and planetary sciences, environmental earth sciences, mathematics, or physics.
