Rossing Physics Scholarship awarded to Gia Minh Nguyen ’24
DECORAH, Iowa – Luther College junior Gia Minh Nguyen has been named a Rossing Physics Scholar for the 2023-24 academic year. Nguyen will receive $5,000 from the Thomas D. Rossing Fund for Physics Education.
Nguyen, a physics and mathematics double major from Vietnam, plans to continue his education after graduating from Luther by attending graduate school for applied physics.
The Thomas D. Rossing Fund for Physics Education makes scholarships available annually for exemplary students in physics.
“I love physics because it has so many applications in real life, and it’s amazing how we can explain all the phenomena using physics,” said Nguyen.
The Rossing scholarship is made possible through gifts from the late Thomas D. Rossing, Luther class of 1950, who created the scholarship fund through the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America Foundation. After graduating from Luther, Rossing earned master’s and doctoral degrees in physics from Iowa State University and worked as professor of physics at St. Olaf College, Northern Illinois University and Stanford University.
