Dr. Barbara held the R. J. V. Johnson-Welch Regents Chair in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Texas at Austin. He was a member the National Academy of Sciences and a TSRC scientist. Paul was a dear friend and esteemed colleague to many at TSRC, and he is deeply missed. This fellowship has been generously funded through the efforts of Greg Voth, Professor of Chemistry at the University of Chicago.
Two scholarships will be awarded annually in the amount of $1,000 each. This money can be used to defray the cost of transportation to Telluride, lodging, food, and other incidentals. For each scholarship awarded, TSRC will fund the cost of registration, worth $275. Preference will be given to students who are in at least their third year of graduate studies; preference will also be given to students who apply by March 31 of a given year for the coming summer program. A TSRC board committee will review all applications and will make the determination as to who receives the awards.

The Telluride Science Research Center (TSRC), located in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, has been dedicated to providing meeting services for scientists for more than 25 years. To apply for this scholarship to attend a TSRC workshop, visit the TSRC website at
