Prizes & Awards

Beams, Pegram and Slack Award Donations

The three awards presented by the Southeastern Section rely on member contributions to sustain them. Many members of the section have made previous donations for the Jesse Beams Award, the George Pegram Award, and the Francis Slack Award.

The Jesse W. Beams Award recognizes especially significant or meritorious research in physics, the major portion of which was carried out in the ten-state SESAPS region in the Southeast.

The George B. Pegram Award honors someone with a career of "Excellence in the Teaching of Physics in the Southeast."

The Francis G. Slack Award honors persons who have during their career exhibited "Excellence in Service to Physics in the Southeast."

If you would like to contribute to the Beams-Pegram Fund and/or the Slack Fund, please feel free to print this page and use it to make your contribution by sending it and your check made out to SESAPS to Dr. Josh Hamblen, SESAPS Treasurer, Department of Chemistry and Physics, MC 2252, University of Tennessee-Chattanooga, Chattanooga, TN, 37403. Dr. Hamblen will also accept contributions at the SESAPS meeting.
