Guyon Receives 2012 MacArthur Fellowship
The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation has chosen Subaru Telescope astronomer Dr. Olivier Guyon to receive a prestigious 2012 MacArthur Fellowship. He joins a diverse, elite group of 23 individuals nationwide selected for this annual honor. Awarded to "talented individuals in a variety of fields who have shown exceptional originality and dedication in their creative pursuits," the fellowships grant $500,000 to each recipient over a five-year period with no conditions placed on the use of the grant. The award recognizes exceptional merit over a broad range of work rather than pinpointing a particular achievement, and the fellowship reinforces the promise of future creative work.
