Professor Bielawski Receives Early Career Award from President Barack Obama

On January 13, 2010, President Barack Obama presented the 2009 Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE). Center for Electrochemistry faculty member Professor Chris Bielawski was among those to receive the award; it is the highest honor bestowed by the United States government on outstanding scientists and engineers beginning their independent careers.

The Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers was commissioned by President Clinton in 1996 to create an award program that would honor and support the extraordinary achievements of young professionals at the outset of their independent research careers in the fields of science and technology. The Presidential Award embodies the high priority placed by the government on maintaining the leadership position of the United States in science by producing outstanding scientists and engineers who will broadly advance science and the missions important to the participating agencies.
