The White House on Wednesday awarded Randy Bartels, assistant professor of electrical engineering at Colorado State University, a Presidential Early Career Award - the U.S. government's highest honor for outstanding up-and-coming scientists and engineers. Bartels, 31, was one of 56 scientists from around the country who received the award in a ceremony that included President George W. Bush. Bartels was the only recipient from a Colorado university and one of two scientists nominated by the U.S. Department of Defense, courtesy of the Office of Naval Research. The DOD on Wednesday also committed $500,000 over five years to Bartels' research as the result of his Presidential Early Career Award. It's his second major DOD honor: In 2005, the Office of Naval Research presented Bartels with the Young Investigator Award - including a $350,000 prize - for his advances in physics and engineering. He was one of 28 investigators selected from a pool of 212 applicants.
