Dr. Philip N. Slater is professor emeritus of Optical Sciences at the University of Arizona, and an expert in remote sensing calibration. He graduated with a B.S. from London University in 1955, and obtained a Ph.D. in physics from Imperial College in London, UK in 1958. After graduation, he was manager of the Optics Research Section at the ITT Research Institute in Chicago until he joined the faculty of the University of Arizona in 1966.

This scholarship is offered by Dr. Slater and his wife, Joan, to support graduate students who demonstrate an aptitude for optical engineering and design, remote sensing or radiometry. 


This award is open to Ph.D. students who are U.S. citizens and full-time students; demonstrated financial need is preferred.
