Dr. Matthew Bobrowsky, the director of special programs at OSCAR, was recognized along with three other members of American Physical Society (APS) to receive 2014 APS “District Advocate of the Year” Awards.

The recognition was featured on the front cover on the 2015 June issue of APS News. Each year, APS recognizes its members who made extra effort to reach out to U.S. and state senators and representatives to argue for support of science. Matt wrote an op-ed about federal funding of scientific research. He also helped to organize and participate in a visit to Congress to talk about the issues raised in his op-ed.
