Nels Nelson fellowship awarded

May 12, 2017

The 2017 Nels P. Nelson Fellowship Award was recently presented to Tyler Olsen, a civil engineering graduate student at the University of Minnesota. The award provides monetary support of the recipient’s research work at the St. Anthony Falls Laboratory (SAFL).

The fellowship award was established in 2010 in memory of Nels Nelson, a water resources engineer and chair of Barr’s board of directors who passed away in January of that year. Nels worked at the SAFL while studying at the University of Minnesota.
