LSC Professor Dietram Scheufele is one of ten noteworthy University of Wisconsin-Madison faculty members who have been named Kellett Mid-Career Award winners for 2014.
The award recognizes outstanding faculty who are seven to 20 years past their first promotion to a tenured position. Each year, the Graduate School chooses winners from among departmental, Ph.D. major program unit or interdepartmental group nominees.
Supported by the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation, the Kellett Award provides $60,000 of research funding to faculty members at a critical stage of their careers. It was named for William R. Kellett, a former president of the WARF board of trustees and retired president of Kimberly-Clark Corp.
