| Education Jagat - 17 Jun 2018

The UK government said it will honour Stephen Hawking by awarding 10 research fellowships to exceptional PhD students excelling in the fields of maths, physics and computer sciences, terming it a “fitting tribute” to the legendary theoretical physicist who died on March 14. 
  UK Research and Innovation will award up to 10 ‘Stephen Hawking fellowships’ a year for the next five years. 
  The fellowships will be awarded to PhD students excelling in the fields of maths, physics and computer sciences, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy said.
   “I am delighted to announce that, following discussions with the Hawking family, we are creating the Hawking Fellowships in his memory. The Fellowships will allow exceptional graduate students in maths, physics and computer science in institutions across the UK to take their work even further.
  “I can think of no more fitting tribute to this great man than to support the next generation to push the boundaries of knowledge of the laws that govern our universe,” said Science Minister Sam Gyimah.
