Since the creation of the Panofsky Fellowship award in 1989, there have been thirteen Fellows performing research at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in the fields of experimental and theoretical particle physics, astrophysics, and accelerator physics.  Starting with fellowships awarded in 2015, we expanded the scope of the Panofsky Fellowship to encompass the full range of scientific research at SLAC.
