The Sheldon Schultz Prize for Excellence in Graduate Student Research was first presented in May 2003 at the 20th anniversary of the founding of the Center for Memory and Recording Research. The Prize is named in honor of former CMRR Director, Sheldon Schultz, who skillfully guided the Center from November 1990 through August 2000.
The Schultz Prize is intended to recognize CMRR graduate students who have distinguished themselves through the creativity of their research and the impact of their publications. The selection of the recipient is based upon the recommendation of a committee consisting of CMRR faculty members, with input from selected experts in information storage technology. The award is presented each year at the Spring CMRR Research Review.
