Vijay Vazirani selected Guggenheim Fellow

Our colleague Vijay Vazirani was selected a 2011 Guggenheim Fellow by the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation at its Board of Trustees meeting on April 6. Only 180 fellows were chosen from a pool of almost 3,000 applicants, and only two fellowships were given to computer scientists. The selection was made on the basis of prior achievement and exceptional promise. Please go to the Guggenheim website for more information about the fellowships.
