JoAnn Joselyn

JoAnn Joselyn grew up during a period of amazing firsts, when advances in science and space exploration captured the imagination of people around the world. "Sputnik was launched on my 14th birthday, and I knew then I was destined for space work," says Joselyn, who has had a 35-year career studying space weather.

So it is fitting that Joselyn went onto capture some of her own "firsts." A 1965 CU-Boulder graduate in applied math, she became the first woman to earn a doctoral degree at CU in astrogeophysics—the study of solar-planetary interactions.

Julia Ratcliff

CU-Boulder undergraduate Julia Ratcliff was among 37 students nationwide to be awarded the Knowles Science Teaching Foundation (KSTF) Fellowship for teachers of biology, mathematics and physical science.

The KSTF Fellowship was established to support, sustain and inspire exceptional young men and women committed to making a difference as teachers. The fellowship is designed to meet the needs of teachers from the time they begin working on a teaching credential through the early years of their career.

Anna Lieb

Anna Lieb, a senior double-majoring in applied mathematics and engineering physics, has won the prestigious Churchill Scholarship, which will pay for a year’s study at Cambridge University.

The scholarship, which comes on the tails of the Goldwater Scholarship that is helping to fund her education this year, is worth approximately $50,000.
