In his three decades serving in San Diego State University’s Physics Department, professor emeritus Lowell Burnett mentored, inspired and educated students while managing multiple businesses and authoring numerous publications.

The Lowell Burnett Endowed Award in Physics typically supports one exceptional undergraduate or graduate physics student annually. This year, however, the foundation extended the award to three students: Undergraduate student Dilon Suliman and graduate students Joe Garbarino and Nicholas Casteloes. In addition, they generously increased the award amount, bestowing each student with $10,000 to cover expenditures from tuition and laboratory fees to research-related expenses.
